Seiryu-ji Temple (Showa-Daibutsu Great Buddha)
Sriryu-ji Temple is known for having Japan's largest seated bronze statue of the Nyorai (or Dainichi) Buddha built in 1984. The statue of Great Buddha, generally called "Showa-Daibutsu", is 21.35 meters in height, which is even higher than the statue of Great Buddha in Nara (14.98 meters) and Kamakura (13.35 meters).
