Kamakura: Daibutsu

The Kamakura Daibutsu (The Great Buddha) is one of the national treasures of Japan. It used to be a bronze statue in the Kotoku-in Temple completed in 1252. The temple building was washed away by a tsunami in 1495 and the Amida Buddha has been sitting in the open air since then.



Sitting at a height of 13.35m, it is the second largest bronze Buddha statue in Japan. The largest is the one in Todaiji of Nara.




Although its stature is not as high as the one in Nara, it is always regarded as having better craftsmanship than its peer in Nara.




Visitors are allowed to enter the hollow core of the statue by paying a small token to the donation box at the entrance.


Daibutsu is also a site not to be missed by school children on an educational tour to Kamakura.

Nikko: Lake Chuzenji

Lake Chuzenji (Chuzenji-ko) is a lake at inner Nikko formed by lava flows of the now extinct volcano. It is a lake on highlands. Although it has the usual tourist facilities, it offers a bit of seclusion from the busy Nikko town.
