At Nokogiri Mountain

Image: Part of 1500 Buddha statues - Tokai Arhats

These are 1500 stone figure of Tokai Arhats. They were carved in 1798 and left in various places in rocks. Not all of them are preserved till nowadays. Looking on these Buddha statues was interesting, because every statue has different face expression. If you look on them from any point, it seems that some statues are watching you.

Max and Rex Ibama are hiding among the Buddhas. Can you see them looking at you?
