Amida Buddha at Kotoku-in, Kamakura

The Amida Buddha at Kamakura is a really large bronze statue at Kotoku-in temple. It was great to see and by far the highlight at this specific temple. It has been washed away and damaged a few times over a long period of time by natural disasters. If I had seen this on my first trip to Japan like my original plane then this would have seem more amazing, but my trip 2 years ago I went to Nara to see the large on at Todai-ji which was incredible because it was housed in this massive wooden building. I sure loved the small beach town and the smell of the sea and the distant sound of waves.
