Apparently, you can even walk inside the big famous old metal Japanese Buddha, which is to Japan, perhaps, as the Empire State Building is to America.

Daibutsu—The Great Buddha of Kamakura:
“I did it with my Canon XH A1 and edited it in Final Cut, then compressed H.264 at 5000 bitrate and 1280×720 size”
The Great Buddha of Kamakura is a monumental outdoor bronze statue of Amida Buddha in the Kotoku-in Temple in Kamakura, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. It is believed that the statue was originally cast in 1252, following an idea by the priest Joko, who also collected donations to build it. The sculptors were One-Goroemon and Tanji-Hisatomo. The statue is approximately 13.35m tall and weighs approximately 93 tons. I had the chance to visit the site several times and was always fascinated by its magnitude; many say it is the most perfect image of the original Buddha. Soundtrack by Parichayaka Hammerl.
