BRONZE STATUE of BUDDHA of THREE SOYBEANS ‘ε“€ŽO—±‚Μ‹ΰ•§(Daizu santsubu no kanabutsu)

Built in 1735, this great statue of Buddha is popular because it is believed to help you accumulate wealth. Sitting in the compound of Zenganji Temple, this 3.6m high statue is called the Buddha Statue 0f Three Soybeans. The folklore says that many long years ago, when the believers were at a loss how to raise enough money to erect a statue of Buddha, one traveling priest donated 3 soybeans and suggested to grow them and the money for the statue would be raised some day, and sure enough the statue was built just as the priest predicted. Why don't you visit this popular statue of Buddha and ask a blessing? Designated municipal cultural property.

EHow to get there:8 minutes' walk from the west exit of JR Utsunomiya Station.
