Hey Funkfaerie. Sorry about that, I had a bit of a brain cramp and missed the word Bronze.
Have you seen both of the Buddhas? Which one do you prefer?
Actually neither... strangely enough. There's on in China-ken in Nokogiriyama... it's carved out of stone from the mountain and it's not in the guidebooks... so there's not many people there. Worth a visit if you're even in Chiba.
