[Person who want to relax and feel something unusual]
"I want to escape from their daily busy routines, and relax while traveling!" We recommend visiting Buddha statues. It provides a moment to reflect upon yourself. There are many places to see a Buddha, whether it be at a museum where national treasures are stored or a large hall in the precinct of a beautiful temple. Look at the smiling face of the Buddha, and it will allow you to forget about your day to day worries and fatigue.

[Person who want to try an amazing experience]
"I want to have an amazing experience when traveling!" We recommend visiting daibutsu. Only a statue with a height over 4.8m is referred to as a daibutsu. There are many daibutsu across Japan, and there is even a statue 100m tall. If you stand at the foot of the statue, you will be overwhelmed and your breath was taken away by the size of the statue. You will be taken away when you see the daibutsu, visited by many people who have dedicated their prayers and wishes. Feel the deepness of their stories left behind. A fun way to enjoy the daibutsu is to explore the inside! You can explore the inside of some large daibutsu, and admire the scenery from the inside.

[Person who want to enjoy activities]
"I want to enjoy activities when traveling!" We will introduce you to many activities to experience at the temple. For example, in a temple where Buddha statues are lined up, find a statue with a face like your own or a person you want to meet. Other activities include swallowing paper in the shape of a Buddha to gain luck, polishing a Buddha statue to cleanse your body and lift a jizo where your wishes may come true. There are many activities to experience!

[Person who want to meet locals more]
"I want to meet new people while traveling!" We recommend an experience of listening to the stories of a chief priest at a temple whilst also admiring the Buddha statue. What is the history behind this Buddha? What does it bring to us? We can also listen to the monks who will tell us how to receive the grace from the Buddhas. In some temples, the stories are told in a fun, simple and easy to understand way through comical performances.
