It is a bit out of the way from the usual tourist destinations that everyone knows and everyone read and see on any site or guide that provides the usual places known to the blind, but maybe it's better, that environment there needs no crazy people. Outside the station there is a bus station peak, you do a small journey in the country, it is still an experience to do, as it goes on the bus marks the various stops and the cost of travel, next to the driver there is a machine to pay the cost of travel, if you do not have enough coins the same change paper money. Even from a distance even before you get there you see this huge statue prominently above the trees and once you get there you realize the actual size. You pay for the ticket to access the Park, with its statue and a small zoo home with a chance to stay in contact with animals and see a little show. But back at the beginning, we cross a few stall with typical souvenir of the place and being different, before arriving in the Park, very nice and cared for like every thing in Japan, with a small contribution along the way there are two bells that can be played and a little further on a pond where you can feed the koi. Spent all this you get to the back of the statue that truly makes impression closely, take off your shoes and put them in a bag to take with you and part of your visit inside the statue, nicely landscaped and with a sort of small museum until you get near the top and enjoy the scenery. Once you get off there is this tiny Park zoo with bunnies, Guinea pigs, squirrels, goats, pigs and monkeys, the latter will make a show of entertainment very easy for visitors, but also for animals. For those who want to spend a half day in complete relaxation I highly recommend it.show original
大仏様の入口までたどり着くまでは雨の中を歩きましたが、大仏様の中は当然屋内なので快適でした。屋内にもさまざまな見所があります。御朱印や写経の申し込みも大仏様の中です。 牛久駅や荒川沖駅からタクシーで15分ほどの距離でした。バスも出ています。Walked in the rain to get to the entrance of the Buddha, Buddha of course indoor so comfortable.

アウトレットモールから大きい大仏が見えたのでついでに行ってきました。入場料と大仏の中に入るのでは料金が変わるので入場料だけを選びました。それでも十分楽しめます。飛行機がばんばん大仏の上を通り抜けるのは見ていて飽きませんでした。池の鯉なども風情があり全体的に来てよかったと思えます。メインの大仏も大迫力！大仏の中に入らなくても楽しめますよ。I went saw large Buddha from the outlet mall. Change rates of admission and Buddha walk into only the admission staff. Still 10 minutes guests can enjoy. Look through the big Buddha statue on a patrol plane could and would never get bored. Koi ponds and the atmosphere and come on the whole it seems. The main Buddha is also large and powerful! It can be enjoyed in the inside of the statue.show original
