500¥ to get in. Not worth climbing the stairs up to the top of the statue as there is very little view. The basement however is very interesting, and you can even go to hell 🤭

Very welcoming place. The temple's various sections are majestic & beautiful; worthy of praise. If you come here, give yourself t least three or four hours to fully enjoy it, because there is so much to see! Making a wish to the temple monks & receiving the gift to post in a high place in your home was the greatest part. I wished for myself a long & healthy life and for world peace/no more war. After departing the temple, I felt so good/blessed. It was definitely worth it. By the way, bring lots of ¥ change with you, because there is many opportunities to give to the temple and it is ¥5,000 tom make two wishes to the temple monk(s). 🛕 Good luck, everyone!

Free parking with entrance fee Beautiful Replica of Mahābodhi temple (lit: "Great Awakening Temple") and a giant 62-meter-tall statue of Kannon, the Goddess of Mercy.

It's a good way to spend some free hours in Kurume. The statue and temple next to it are very unique in Japan. You can climb up inside the statue and go underground to see various exhibitions (heaven and hell, rocks, paintings). The entrance fee is about 500 yen, not expensive.

Amazing place! You will need to pay to access the statue area but it is only $5 and you can walk to the top of the statue and there is a museum under it too. They have information about the statue in English too. There are viewing windows inside the staute where you can get a good view of the city. You are allowed to open the windows.
