Kōtoku-in

Kamakura was, once upon a time, the capital city of Japan (hence the Kamakura period). As such, it has some incredible architecture and monuments to be seen, though the entire town is often overlooked these days. The largest monument the Great Buddha in the Kotoku-in buddhist temple. The statue itself, cast from bronze, dates back to 1252 and is one of the most hauntingly beautiful sites in all of Japan.
