The Daibutsu (Great Buddha) in Kamakura was built in the 13th century in reaction to the Daibutsu in Nara. A symbol of political power in the east of Japan, it is a precious inheritance that reveals the popularity of the Pure Land Sect at that time. As early as 1607, Father Rodrigues paid a visit to the Daibutsu (in 1618, the English Captain Saris, also paid a visit).
