Thing.

The Buddhist statues in Yokohama, which have been preserved and handed down over time, range from statues with unique regional characteristics to sophisticated urban-style statues. Introducing Buddhist statues in Yokohama that show various appearances from time to time, reflecting changes in people's beliefs and aesthetics.
