Visit one of the largest quarry of stones in Japan, Oya-ji Temple where a large stone statue which is more than 1000 years old is located. And a stone statue of a Deity of Mercy with a height of 27meters. It's possible to take one day trip from Tokyo to here. But I recommend to stop here on your way to Nikko-The world Heritage site, if you can spend one more day around here.
JR Utsunomiya Station at the Shinkansen ticket gate.
Visit more than 30 meters under ground quarry and touch the history of quarrying technology in a museum.
Visit Oya-ji Temple where a statue of Deity of Mercy with one thousand hands and eyes which is national treasure and more than one thousand-year-old is located.
Visit Oya Heiwa Kannon (a Deity of mercy) with a height of 27meters.
Same as above.
Oya-ji Temple has also a dead body which is about 11,000 years old in the period of the oldest Japanese culture (Jomon culture which extended from about 10,000 BC to 300 BC. You can walk in a small mountainous area, and touch a local atmosphere around here.

Thank you very much. Have a safe trip! And I hope your future will be safe and healthy.
We are glad to have Akio as our guide to show us the nice and interesting places in Tokyo. Akio is very patient and never rush us. He told us some history and what is interesting about the places we saw. Without Akio, it would be very difficult for us to go around the subway stations in Tokyo. Thank you Akio.
Thank you very much for your comments. I greatly appreciated you telling me that.
