Five-Hundred Buddhist Arhats at Chokeiji Zen Temple

These statues calm the hearts of all who visit
In this mystical location, a stunning 500 stone statues and an equal number of Japanese stone lanterns have been arranged in ascending rows up the steep hillside. The statues are Buddhist arhats (those who have reached enlightenment in this life), and their solemn individualized faces look out over the city below.
