The window of Daibutsuden ( Great Buddha Hall) open to reveal the Buddha’s face twice a year, on new year's day and on the 15th of August.

You can look up to see and worship the Buddha’s face through the window at the podium near the inner gate. At night time, the lamps light up to reveal a fantastic atmosphere.
