In Ueno Park, there is a spot where you can greet Buddha…but only his face.
This Buddha used to rise six meters in height and have a full body.
But the head fell down in 1923 when the great earthquake occurred and has been preserved in the park ever since.

It is said to bring good luck if you touch the face. Because it can’t drop any further, students sitting their entrance exams come here to pray not to “drop” their exam.
