Daibutsu by heeeeman Daibutsu by heeeeman
Daibutsu (Great Buddha) - In Kamakura, Kanagawa prefecture, Japan.

The Great Buddha (大仏, daibutsu), is a monumental outdoor bronze statue of Amida Buddha which is one of the most famous icons of Japan. The statue stands at 13.35 meters high and weighs approximately 93 tons, and is the second largest monumental Buddha in Japan after Tōdai-ji in Nara.

It is believed that the statue was originally cast in 1252, following an idea by the priest Joko, who also collected donations to build it. The sculptors were One-Goroemon and Tanji-Hisatomo. The statue is hollow, and visitors can view the interior for 20 Yen a person. The Great Buddha was originally housed in a temple, but this was washed away by a tsunami in 1495.
