The Daibutsu might be a very touristic place in Kamakura, but it's great to experience this tall Buddha in reality. You have even the chance to get inside it for some coins and learn a little bit about how they built this statue.
The highlight of Kōtoku-in Temple was being allowed to actually go inside the statue of the Great Buddha; a welcome surprise and for a small donation of twenty Japanese yen.
The temple grounds are beautiful, and like the Great Buddha, extremely large. A wonderful place to go for a stroll after wandering around inside a giant rusting statue of bronze and gold.
