About this sight

A short hike away from Route 410 of Chiba, this temple is home to one of the largest reclining Buddha statues in east Asia. The bronze statue weights 30 tons and measures 16 meters wide. It shows the buddha sleeping, symbolizing the day he entered Nirvana, regarded as the highest state of consciousness in the Buddhist religion.
