Trip Moments

Living here is not the United States Zizi Kamakura Buddha located in the ancient Tudor Temple in the ancient capital of Kamakura, the Amitabha statue of the bronze statue commonly known as the Kamakura Buddha, is the symbol of the ancient capital Kamakura, the Buddha's net height of 11.3 meters, even the pedestal 13.35 meters, weighing about 121 tons. The Buddha statue was built in 1252. The flat face of the Buddha, the lower meat and the forward leaning posture, etc., have the style of the Song Dynasty Buddha statue popular in the Kamakura period. It is a representative statue of the Kamakura period and was designated as the Japanese national treasure. . Unlike the Great Buddha of Nara Todai-ji Temple, which has undergone many repairs in later generations, the Kamakura Buddha has basically maintained the original form of the statue, so it is very precious. Interestingly, the Kamakura Buddha, one of the three largest Buddha statues in Japan, is also suffering from the fate of Kamakura. The original Kamakura Buddha, which was built in 1238, has a wooden structure and has been completed for six years. But after three years, it was destroyed by a typhoon. Thus, in 1253, the bronze statue of sitting Buddha was recast and enshrined in the Great Buddha Hall. The Great Buddha Hall also experienced many typhoons, fire damage, and was rebuilt again and again. But in 1498, the entire hall was destroyed by the intrusion of sea water. Since then, Buddha statues have been worshipped in the open air until now.
