The Shurakuen Buddha was constructed to commemorate the marriage of Emperor Showa. Its eyes were set in place in 1927, marking the consecration of the statue. Even larger than the Great Buddhas of Kamakura and Todaiji Temple, the statue is a popular symbol of Tokai City. At Shurakuen Park where the Great Buddha is to be found, not only is there playground equipment and lawn areas visitors can play on, but also facilities including training rooms, indoor pools and baths. You can also enjoy a cup of matcha while admiring Japanese-style gardens, at "Omeian."
