A Statue Honoring Buddhism

Several posts ago, I posted a photo of a Temple Bell in a location I discovered by driving around Yomitan.  At this same location was a large statue of a buddhist monk.  This statue is around 15 feet tall but when you add the pedestal and stairs leading up to it, it's about 30 feet in height.  This whole area with the bell and statue was provided by a devout buddhist businessman in an effort to honor his religion.
