I am an English guide
in charge of KOTOKUIN TEMPLE.
|Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.|
Kotokuin Temple is in Kamakura which was the capital city of Kamakura Shogunate during 12th century to 14th. The temple is famous for the Great Image of Buddha or Daibutsu. A bronze image of Amida, one of the Buddhist divinities was cast in 1252 at the request of Shogun Yoritomo, the founder of the Kamakura Shogunate. It is 11.5 meters high and weighs 122 metric tons. The pure silver boss between the brows is symbolic of the emission of light to enlighten the world. Its hand symbols represent he was in which people are grante “rebirth in paradise” by Amida. This Daibutsu used to be enshrined in an impressive wooden building, which was damaged by storms and later carried away by a tidal wave toward the end if the 15th century. The image has been left open ever since. You can go into the Daibutsu and feel the huge size and its greatness.
