Inside the Buddha's Belly

One of the highlights of the Tokyo trip was the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to walk into the Buddha's belly. The hollow statue was packed with people and their voices ricocheted off the walls creating a trance-like drone. The big Buddha at Kamakura was originally housed within a temple which was washed away by a tsunami at the end of the 15th century.
