Nanzoin
Nanzoin Temple is the same size as New York's Statue of Liberty, the reclining Buddha of Nanzoin Temple, in Sasaguri, Fukuoka, Japan. This area has recently become a popular place for tourists, as you can enjoy both traditional Japanese culture and breathe in the fresh air from the mountains here as well. If you walk around the statue, you will notice that there is a design on the sole of the Buddha's foot. The Bussoku, or Buddha's Foot, was the subject of prayer in early Indian Buddhism. This design carries the precious teachings and merciful heart of the Buddha. You can also walk around and see the other side of the Buddha too. Being able to worship the Buddha from any side, all the while appreciating the amazing size of the statue itself is incredible. #givethanks #givethanks
