Kamakura: Daibutsu Area

Kamakura was originally set up as a capital city by Japan’s first Samurai government (called the Kamakura Shogunate), independent from the Imperial government of Kyoto. Starting in the early 13th century, the Kamakura Shogunate began to regulate the city’s institutions and facilities. In those days, the country was based on Buddhism, and so the city was planned in accordance with Buddhist philosophy. The Shogunate built temples at the north, south, east and west corners of Kamakura city to receive the protection of the religious spirits.

And then, they built a symbol of the newly established capital. This was Daibutsu. However, the original Daibutsu was actually a large wooden statue, but it was soon destroyed by what was probably a typhoon. In the mid 13th century, they rebuilt it using a more durable bronze cast. It is the same Daibutsu we have with us today.
