Kamakura Kotokuin | The Great Buddha of Kamakura

Kotokuin is most famous for the Kamakura Daibutsu or Great Buddha of Kamakura. The Great Buddha is the second largest Buddha statue in Japan, just after that of Todaiji Temple. The Great Buddha of Kamakura originally sat inside the temple but due to deterioration by the weather, it has been standing in the open air, a unique feature among Buddha statues in Japan.
