"The Kamakura Daibutsu is an amazing example of Buddhist Material Culture. Its official title is the Kondou-Amidai-Nyourai-Zou. This statue stands approximately 37 feet high and weighs about 93 tons. The Daibutsu was cast by either Ono Goroemon or Tanji Hisamoto in 1252 AD in the city of Kamakura. The Kamakura Daibutsu is a very important religious statue as well as a tourist attraction. The Kamakura Daibutsu is the second largest Buddha in Japan and about the third largest Buddha in the world. Kamakura is a smaller city that is a few hours away from Tokyo and houses other temples and statues. For a small fee a tourist or pilgrim can actually enter the Daibutsu and see its interior."

These fixtures are found on the Daibutsu Hiking Trail nearby.
