    Amazing Buddha statue. Don't miss out the big flip flops on the wall! Provided for the day Buddha stands up and walks away.

    The statue is quite big, but not big enough. Entry is cheap. Statue looks dirty. You can go inside the statue. Lots of shade.

    Ironic that the statue is 'hollow' but worth the walk around Kamakura.

    Did you know that you don't have to pay to get in? It's considered a "Recommended Donation". But if you don't pay you don't get a handy brochure and you will feel guilty. So pay up, cheapskate!! ;-)

    Absolutely beautiful. You can see I believe the second largest Buddah statue here. You can also go inside the statue for 20 yen but there's not much to see in there.
