Just in case you might need to use the squatto (japanese style toilet) on your way home. :p I'm still on the hunt for a good pic of those peculiar "toilets"

The Laughing Buddha, he is one of the many buddhas. It is believed to have been a really happy monk who lived in China during the Liang Dynasty. His image has been incorporated to almost all form of Buddhism and into Shinto and Taoist cultures.

Le Boudha Rieur, il fait partie des nombreux boudhas. Il semblerais qu'il fût un moine très content qui a vécu en Chine durant la Dynastie des Liang. Il fait maintenant partie de presque toute les formes de Boudhisme et aussi des cultures Shinto et Taoiste.



Finaly! Tokyo's Big Buddha. Well hidden in a tiny suburb.

Enfin, Le Grand Boudha de Tokyo. Bien caché dans une petite banlieux.
