  • Udono Sekibutsu Buddhist Rock Carvings (Prefectural Historic Site)
    Travel / Tourism
    Saga Pref. Karatsushi Ouchichououchi
    "Located around 20 minutes' walk from Ouchi Station on the JR Karatsu Line, the Buddhist rock carvings of various sizes comprise a group of 60 or so Magaibutsu (Buddhist images carved into cliffs or caves) carved into a protruding cliff. The carvings have been designated as a Prefectural Historic Site by Saga Prefectural Government, and were also selected for inclusion in the ""New List of 100 Scenic Spots in Saga."" According to tradition, the first Buddhist carving on the site was made in a cave by Kobo Daishi in 806. That statue has not survived, and the cave subsequently collapsed, leaving only the inner wall. The surviving carvings appear to have been made during various different periods, from the Nanboku-cho period (in the 14th century) through to the Edo period (1603-1868). Several of the carvings-including a statute of 11-headed Kanzeon Bodhisattva , and statues of Vaisravana and Dhrtarastra, show a pronounced influence from Esoteric Buddhism."

    Saga Pref. Sagashi Kawasoemachihayatsuetsu 446-1
    "A National Historic Site located in Hayatsuetsu Kawasoe-machi, Saga City. The site also makes up part of the UNESCO's World Heritage Sites of Japan's Meiji Industrial Revolution: Iron and Steel, Shipbuilding and Coal Mining. Originally built as a shipbuilding training yard by the former Saga Domain in 1858, the site was used for Western style ship naval education and construction. The site contributed significantly to the modernization of Saga Domain at the end of the Edo period, including being used to build Japan's first practical steamship, the ""Ryofu-maru"". In the adjoining ""Tsunetami Sano Memorial Museum"", visitors can view VR exhibits and restored scale models."

    日赤の創始者だそうです。三重津海軍所跡の見学と合わせて立ち寄りました。記念館は海軍所の資料館と同じ建物でした。

Saga Main Areas

around-area-map

Away from the fast-paced cities of mainland Japan, Kyushu's Saga prefecture offers quaint towns and cities known for their traditional crafts, particularly ceramics. Rich in kaolin (a type of clay), Saga became the homeland of Arita ware, a delicate, decorative porcelain that is now celebrated worldwide and can be discovered in the towns of Arita, Imari, and Karatsu.
