Myohoji Rotating Buddha - Myohoji is a Buddhist Temple of the Nichiren sect, most famous for its unique rotating Buddha. This bronze Buddha is surprisingly not famouso even though it presides over a pet cemetary and rotatates twice per day, around 9 am and again at 5 pm. During the mornings the Buddha faces south, protecting the temple, the graves and the area. Late afternoon after its rotation, it faces busy Setagaya-Dori Road protecting people from traffic and kids coming home from school. Rather than a 360 degree rotation, rather Myohoji Buddha is more accurately a pivot, as it only turns into two directions.
