Buddha of Ushiku Reviews
世界一大きい大仏❗もちろん遠くからも見えるが近づくと想像以上の大きさにビックリ✨入館料800円払えばエレベーターで胸元辺りまで上れ、色々展示してます。ウサギ、猿などの小動物園もあるのでお子さまがいても楽しめる more »World's biggest Buddha ❗ approach is of course far from surprised at the size than you think ✨ up. offers up the chest area if you pay 800 yen admission fee, will exhibit various.

高速道路を走行中に大仏が見えましたが、近くへ行ってその大きさを確認する事にしました。とにかく大きい。圧巻です。 more »Decided to go near the highway while driving to Buddha that appeared, to determine its size. Anyway great. It is a sight to see.
閉園5時で4時前に到着したにも関わらず、展望台への入場規制が掛けられており、胎内見学できず。。。ゴールデンウィークの混雑をなめていた。。。エレベーターの待ち時間が1時間レベルだそうだ。 登れないのに料金は通常料金と一緒の800円。 チケットカウンター入口に立っていた年配の男性スタッフが「先に言っておきますが、中には入れませんよー 、それでもいいならお入りください」を連呼していた。遠方からわざわざや... more »In the closing 5:00 4 to arrive ago regardless of entry regulations to the Observatory and hung, womb cannot be visited. Golden rush and licked. The elevator wait 1 hour level it seems. Rates are usually together with fee 800 yen's climb. Older stood at ticket counter staff "before, but not during it!, please enter if you're still looking good" were. For customers come from far away sorry for without any word. Why so mysterious or heavy-handed. Ushiku Daibutsu of ruin. I looked at other people's comments is not good public transportation. From the train station by bus takes nearly 30 minutes. So it is not is not within walking distance. Be careful because it less buses.
It's big, it's spiritual, it's just beautiful. I highly recommend this place as you can learn and pet rabbits here. This place really makes you contemplate the gift of life, you know. Be wary about the access and bus times, as buses come here and go about once an hour, so coming early (about 9 am from Nippori) in the morning is a must if you are in Tokyo.
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 :)
Memorable buddhist place. Nice scenic views. Tanqility. Peace of mind. Mahayana buddhism type monument. Man made great structure on the planet. Public transport information ins very poor. At the area no acess to internet. Station people is not good in English. Hassel to go from train station to the monument.
Theres a petting zoo and a large garden to stroll and relax in. Spring or autumn would be the ideal time to visit. There is also a festival in the summer complete with fireworks and lanterns.
We've been twice now! One just cannot convey how enormous this Buddha is without seeing it towering over the farmland.
