  • Ushiku Daibutsu: Buddha on a whole new scale

    Ushiku Daibutsu Buddha is the world's biggest bronze statue. In fact, it's so big that the famous Nara Buddha would fit in the palm of its hand! The statue is 120m tall, chosen for the fact that 12 is an auspicious number in Buddhism. Inside, the statue is split into 5 levels. Visitors can explore how the giant statue was constructed through phtoso and exhibitions and even see a scale model of the statue's toe.
  • Ushiku Daibutsu Gardens

    The gardens surrounding Ushiku Daibutsu are the perfect place to appreciate the transient beauty of the seasons and of life itself after your visit to the Buddha. During Spring, 12 types of flowers including poppies and Baby's Breath fill the area around the statue with a riot of colour, and visitors can pick some flowers to take home from May onwards. From May to July, the gardens are transformed first by tree peonies and Chinese peonies and then by hydrangea, culminating in the fields of Cosmos flowers during the Autumn.
