The date of the photograph is unknown. The large flat stones in front of the statue may be the former foundation stones. A document from the mid-Edo Period states that 60 foundation stones lined the perimeter of the statue, about 38 meters on the north and south sides and about 45 on the east and west. The Great Buddha is an object of worship and climbing upon it is prohibited today.
