Kamakura Daibutsu (kotoku-in) or the Great Buddha of Kamakura is a gigantic bronze statue of Amida Buddha and it makes for an iconic image of Kamakura.
The statue, found in the Kotokuin Temple grounds and standing 11.4-meter high, used to be the second tallest Buddha statue of Japan, after the one found in the Todaiji Temple of Nara. Cast in 1952, the bronze statue was originally placed inside a large temple building. However, the temple building suffered multiple damages during a tsunami and many typhoons in the 14th and 15th centuries, until eventually it collapsed altogether.
Since then, the statue is standing (or, sitting rather) in the open inside the temple precincts through all these centuries.Places nearby:
