Hyogo Daibutsu, Kobe, Japan

The Hyōgo Daibutsu (兵庫大仏) in Kobe is known as one of the three big Buddhas in Japan, in the same class with the Nara and Kamakura Daibutsus. The original statue at Nōfukuji Temple in Kobe had been melted down in 1944 for the ‘Metals recovery ordinance’, and was replaced in 1991 with the current version which is 11 meters tall, and weighs in at 60 tons.
