Ushiku Daibutsu is 120 meters high and is one of the tallest Buddha statues in the world. There are five stories inside the statue and an elevator that will take you up to the lookout at 85 meters.

The views are gorgeous. They had a lovely range of flowers planted by the Daibutsu when we went, I'm assuming they do this by the season so there's always something pretty in view. This is one of the top 3 tallest statues in the world, and it's one of those things you do need to see in person to fully appreciate!
I'd recommend combining it with another activity in Ibaraki if you're passing through, or packing a picnic lunch to fully enjoy the day. There were a few picnic tables scattered around with a view of the Daibutsu which made for a very pretty and serene scene.
