Otagi Nenbutsu-ji is a Buddhist temple in Arashiyama near Kyoto that features over 1200 stone Rakan or disciples of Buddhism that were carved from across Japan under the guidance of sculptor Kocho Nishimura. Each sculpture is a display of expressive faces and gestures that still manage to translate through the moss that covers them.
