Beppu Peace Pagoda(Busshari-to)

If you are interested in the Buddhism, visit Beppu Peace Pagoda.
They call the Pagoda as Busshari-to or a charnel for holy monks. This Pagoda was built in 1987 to wish to establish a peaceful world.

In the building, you can see several Buddha statues including a unique lying down Buddha.(Below)

Additionally, you can enjoy one of the greatest views of Beppu looking down the bay of Beppu and also of the Kunisaki peninsula as far as Shikoku Island on clear days.

Around the Pagoda, the beautiful cherry blossoms are seen in spring time.

To go there, take a bus No. 25 from JR Beppu station east exit, then get off at “Heiwakinento Iriguchi”. It takes about 16 min. bus ride and about 15 min. walk to the Pagoda from the bus stop.
