Completely Zen. Even with visitors this place is calm. It's a nice spot to grab snacks at the mini-market, enjoy the beautiful Japanese style garden and view the main attraction - the Buddha. Highly recommend for first timers or as a continuous spot to relax. Bring a book! Please respect the surroundings and enjoy the vibes of the nature around.

Very interesting feature in rural Ibaraki. The tallest Buddha Statue in the world, once the tallest statue in the world. The interior is modern yet very calm and can put you at peace as you wander about and learn more about pure land Buddhism.
