Ryozen Kanon

The Ryozen Kanon is a giant concrete-and-steel Buddha constructed in 1955 by Hiroshuke Ishikawa, in Kyoto. The aim of the shrine was to honour the more than one million Japanese soldiers who perished during World War II. The shrine underneath the statue is composed of the images of thunder and wind (Bodhisattva Ekādaśamukha). There are four services held daily at the shrine to honour the fallen soldiers. In addition to the memorial tablets of the known soldiers archived in the room, Ryozen Kanon also has a memorial hall dedicated to the unknown soldiers who also died during WWII.
