My Trip to Tokyo Wan Kannon

This week, I am continuing my posts about my trip to Japan. (Check out my post about Tokyo Disneyland, here. Check out my post about  Ochanomizu Music Instrument Avenue, here. Check out my post about the Sunshine Aquarium, here. Check out my post about my trip to Akihabara, here. Check out my post about my trip to Naritasan Shinshoji Temple, here.)

This week, I wanted to share with you some photos from my Trip to Tokyo Wan Kannon. 🙂

I took the train to Futtsu, Chiba.

After I left the train station, I had to choose between taking a taxi to Tokyo Wan Kannon or traveling by foot. I chose to walk 🙂

I eventually came upon some signs telling me that I was getting closer to Tokyo Wan Kannon.

I continued on with my hike toward Tokyo Wan Kannon and began walking up some steep, winding roads.

Eventually, I could see Tokyo Wan Kannon from a distance. Look at how big it is!

Then, I finally got to the site of this beautiful, huge statue.

Not only was Tokyo Wan Kannon really incredible from the outside, but it was also amazing from the inside! On each floor there were different statues.

Near the statues were stamps of the statues that I got to put in my Tokyo Wan Kannon passbook.

Also, on each floor there were windows, and I got to look out at the beautiful countryside.

On each floor, there was also a map that showed you where in the statue you were standing.

The higher I went up in Tokyo Wan Kannon, the more of the beautiful Tokyo Bay I was able to see.

My trip to Tokyo Wan Kannon was absolutely breathtaking. Seeing such a large statue in person was absolutely incredible, and going up inside the statue and seeing the countryside and the beautiful Tokyo Bay was such an amazing experience! 🙂

  1. Hi Allison. I also had the opportunity to visit the Tokyo Wan Kannon last July, and it was certainly an amazing sight. Although I could visit the gardens and the base, the stairs to the top were closed due to a certain holiday, and I had to leave without knowing what was inside. Thank you for sharing your experience. 🙂

    • Thank you for your comment, Joaquin. I am sorry to hear that you were unable to go to the top of Tokyo Wan Kannon as it was absolutely breathtaking! I am glad that you enjoyed your visit there even if you could not see all of the sights. 🙂

Thoughts? Please post them :-)
