Day 7 Photo101-BIG

Not far from our town lies the mountain town of Sasaguri-home to one of the world’s biggest bronze statues. The photo above shows a woman pressing coins into the groves on Buddha’s feet.

The reclining Buddha measures 41 meters in length, 11 meters in height, and weighs 300 tons.

Yes-it’s BIG.

The inside is actually a shrine that you can walk through!

Check out my earlier post about this famous statue!
