extraordinary sculptures

This well worth visit if you are at the Hachimangu Shrine. The sculpture in particular is a vivid representing of the Kamakura School. Quite exquisite and extraordinary.

Here is where many of the priceless sculptures from nearby temples have been collected. The Kamakura period features highly realistic wood carved sculptures that are as expressive and artistic as those done in Europe. Especially memorable are the 12 generals guarding Buddha and attendants. Highly recommended.
