Buddhist Pagoda of Kanazawa

We see a white tower from the observation point of Kenrokuen garden. I was often asked about the white tower located in the middle of Utastuyama hill by my customers. Nehru Jawaharlal, ex- Prime Minister of India presented Bone of Buddha to Japan in 1954, about 10 years after World War 2. This pagoda was constructed in 1974, about 20 years after receiving Buddha’s Bone from Nehru. This pagoda is the symbol of praying for recovery of Japan from shambles after WW2, and of praying for forever-lasting World Peace.
