"Go to Kamakura and see the..." Great Buddha of Kamakura Tip by Pavlik_NL

Great Buddha of Kamakura, Kamakura: 1 reviews and 1 photos


Favorite thing: Go to Kamakura and see the Great Buddha. The statue is the largest in it's kind and used to stand in an enormous templecomplex (made of wood, so ... a fire destroyed the whole building). The surroundings are equally intresting, with many Shinto-shrines and Buddhistic temples.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
