  Kamakura Buddha
by Chilie

In Kamakura is the famous 13 m Buddha Statue. Completely bronze, made from former melted bronze coins. Inside it is hollow, so you walk around inside a stairs!
Around is really interesting cemetery with thousands of dressed small puppets, unique in Japan.

Address: Kamakura, East Japan
Directions: Kamakura, ca. 15 mins. by foot from the train station
