Travel Guide - Usuki Sekibutsu Stone Buddhas


Usuki Sekibutsu Stone Buddhas are over 60 of stone Buddhist images carved on a natural cliff in Utsuki. Even though any record about the stone Buddhas has not been found, they are believed to have been carved between the 12th and 14th centuries. The reason why they were created is unclear. These stone Buddhas are some of the most prestigious creations in Japan, and 59 of them are designated as National Treasures in 1995.
