So cool!! I really enjoyed the view!! Try to go early so you beat the crowed, and give yourself some time to explore the rest of the park (cost extra to go in to some temples and more Buddhas, but well worth it! ¥80 extra...More

An exceptional site which can be easily spoiled by the large numbers of tourists who will be there once the park has been open for an hour or more. My advice is to get there as the park opens and head straight to the giant...More

Truly amazing experience. The statue is enormous and the views from the river boat are excellent. It took about one hour to queue in the rain but don't worry if you have not brought rain gear there are umbrellas, raincoats and rain booties for sale.
