Handsome Great Buddha

Entire View of Handsome Great Buddha, Kamakura.

U.S. Navy FPO 98761
August 11, 1976


"This great statue is only about 10 miles from where we live, made from bronze in 1200 A.D. It stands some 40 ft. high and is really quite impressive. Many Japanese are both Buddhists ans Shintoists, very few are Christians. We climbed up into his head for a really nice view of the city. Will write more later."

I've often wondered what it's like to get inside the head of a great Buddha....
