The Sendai Daikannon Statue is one of the top ten tallest statues in the world. Located next to the Best Western Hotel, the statue is a unique tourist destination. Don't just look at it, step inside. Pray at one of the 33 Kannon statues on the ground floors, or attempt to remove your negative energy at one of the 108 Buddhist statues spread over its twelve stories. The top floor has viewing windows which offer spectacular views of the city suburbs and nearby surroundings. Bring your cameras for this big wonder and step way back to fit it in frame.
