Stone Buddhas of Oita City


While not as impressive nor numerous as the stone Buddhas to the south of Oita City in Usuki or to the north in the Kunisaki Penisula, There are some example of stone buddhas, ie relief carving directly in rock, in Oita City.


To the south of the modern downtown area is the old town of Motomachi, and along a short historical walk that takes in some old temples and shrines are a few examples.


The one shown here are the Motomachi Stone Buddhas and the Iwayaji Temple Stone Buddhas.


They havent been restored, but they cost nothing to view. If you are in Oita then the historic walk is a nice break.
