Mt. Nokogiriyama via the Aqualine

If you like abnormally large Buddhas, as I do, Nokogiri Yama is the place for you!

Our journey started with a drive on the Aqualine. The Aqualine is world's longest undersea tunnel, running 60 meters (197 feet) deep under the surface of the water. It is quite expensive to travel this route.
The first place we came to was the Hundred Shaku Kwan-non. Not sure of the translation, but it was neat. The picture below was a narrow canyon you passed through to get to it.

Here is the Nihon-ji Daibutsu. This is the largest carved stone figure of Buddha in Japan.



Rurikoo Observatory. I have also seen this referred to as "Peering into Hell."
