Buddha of Ushiku Reviews
近場のスポットだが有名すぎて何となくさけていたが来てみた。やはり大仏が大きいので圧倒される。大仏内部も豪華絢爛で、小動物たちもたくさんみれて良かったです。今度は花が咲きみだっれる時に見てみたい。結構観光客がいました。 more »Come on but somehow avoiding nearby spot is too famous. Overwhelmed because it was large. Buddha also luxury is gorgeous, nice small animals too see her again. Now bloom solution was that when you want to see. Many were tourists.
牛久にある巨大な大仏です。 友人と車で行きました。 駐車場は広く数もあります。 大仏の中まで入り上まで行くと８００円かかります。 思った以上に大きく外国人の友人もびっくりしていました。 周りにお土産屋さんもあります。 more »It is a giant Buddha in ushiku. I went in the car with a friend. Parking large number. Reach up into the inside of the statue will be 800 yen. More than I expected greater foreign friends also enjoyed. Souvenir shops around.
高速道路からのアクセスも良くなりました。向かう途中で見えてくるので子供たちは大興奮でした。あみアウトレットのメール会員になると割引になるので少しおトクに入れました。フォトスポットもあり、若者でも楽しめそうです。大仏の中から見る景色も素晴らしかったです。動物と触れ合える所もあってかなり得した気分でした。施設の中に食堂があるのも良かったです。 more »Now easy access from the motorway. You will see on the way the children were excited. Ami would discount outlet email members with a little discount to put. Photo spot, so young people can enjoy. Fantastic view from the inside of the statue. I was feeling, commune with animals, which pretty much. Good facilities in room is located.
Impressive Buddha, it's really to see it but I would say that's not a must have to see. First you'll probably go from Tokyo, so you'll have to pay the ticket until Ushiku and wait around 1h. Then arriving at Ushiku, you'll have to wait the bus going to the Buddha (1 per hour), around 1h again and it's super expensive. Arriving there, you'll have to pay an extra for entering in the Buddha. It's apparently nice to see it during spring because there are cherry trees. You have also a little lake with a lot of carps that you can feed for 100¥. You can enter in the Buddha even if you're in a weelchair. The ground floor is very weird, extremely modern (photo with the lights). Then the next floors are : - A little museum about the construction and the maintenance of the Buddha. - A religious place where you can dedicate a short gold Buddha. - A very very very small point of view - Finally a shop. So I don't recommend it, excepted if for you this Buddha have a religious importance, or if you're not concerned about money and time, or if you really want see the biggest Buddha of Japan :)
I went to the Ushiku daibutsu with my son. And, we went to the Small animal park. That was fun. I touched rabbits :)
Guinness Record Holder as the largest bronze buddha in the world. It is 120 metres high. The toe alone is the height of the average adult. There is a small museum of sorts inside it. You need to take your shoes off going in and carry them with you in a plastic bag they provide. You can currently only go up to the level of the lotus flower upon which the buddha stands. There is a small viewing deck there. Free in over New Years: on January 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Nice grounds around the statue as well as a small zoo out back, which currently has a baby alpaca.
Decent place to visit for half a day. Going up the statue was worth only for 3000 gold statues of Buddha which costs an extra 300 yen over the 500 entry fee to the park and to the base of the statue. Late night transportation might be an issue unless you have your own vehicle.
You can find one of the tallest Buddha statue in this place. Calm & peace place.
