Yet Another Buddha

Last week I went to see the largest Buddha statue in Japan at Nihon Temple, Nokogiri Mountain.  It seems that many statues claim this title by tricky use of words.  This may be the largest sitting Buddha made out of stone.  And even that may not be accurate.  It might be the largest sitting statue made out of stone that is considered an ancient Buddha, and not one of those modern ones that was probably made to attract tourists.

Whatever it actually is it was still impressive at 31 metres in height.

    I don’t see any grapefruit. That’s a shame. One of the things we learned before is that Buddha is partial to grapefruit.

    I don’t remember seeing any grapefruit at any of the Buddha’s I saw on this trip. I did see incense but don’t remember seeing any fruit.
