Our most recent foray was to see the Takasaki Kannon in Gunma. The Kannon (goddess of mercy) is 41.8 Meters (9 stories) tall.
Like the Statue of Liberty, visitors may go inside and climb the stairs of the Kannon (all 9 stories). There are also statues of Buddha inside.
In the park there is also a cave filled with art work, but due to time limitations we did not get to see it.
Food, restrooms, and souvenir shops are available.
