Photographer Captures Perfect Shots of Japan’s Great Buddha “Сrying”

Japan boasts several impressive “Great Buddha” statues, but the Ushiku Daibutsu in Ibaraki prefecture is perhaps its most photogenic. Surrounded by beautiful flower gardens, the 120 meter tall bronze Buddha is the tallest statue in Japan and third tallest in the world. On clear days and from the right angle, you can even capture a stunning shot of the Ushiku Daibutsu and Mount Fuji together.

Talented Japanese photographer Tatsuto Shibata (previously) also caught the imposing Great Buddha at a very particular moment. When visiting the Ushiku Daibutsu, he actually caught a few shots of what appeared to be the Buddha crying!
