Do you happen to know there is a Daibutsu ( a great statue of Buddah ) in Tokyo? Actually we have one in Tokyo.
When it comes to Daibutsu, ones in Kamakura and in Nara are famous. They have a long history. Compared with them, Tokyo Daibutsu was erected only about 40 years ago ( in 1970 ).
However Tokyo Daibutsu is conveniently located and the site is far less crowded than that of Kamakura one or Nara one. So it is comfortable to enjoy visiting the site. In addition, you can enjoy a calm atmosphere of the surrounding area, which makes you think it hard to believe that you are in Tokyo.
