ContactUsuki Stone Buddhas, Management Office


The figures of Usuki Stone Buddhas are said to have been created between the late Heian and the Kamakura period. This particular cluster in Usuki is one of the most notable in size, number, and quality in the country. They are Japan's first stone Buddhas, simultaneously Kyushu's first sculptures, to have been registered as a National Treasure. A total of 59 have been designated as such out of over 60 figures found at the site.
Beautiful lotus flowers come into full bloom between June and July at the neighboring lotus field of Usukisekibutsu Park.
