In front of the Statue sits numerous statues of the happy buddha under cherry blossom trees that will come into full bloom at the arrival of spring. Yu-ai Bell Tower holds a 600-kilogram bell which is a gift of the Japanese. The area in front of the Hall of Kshitigarbha is the columbarium for Taiwanese, Japanese soldiers and Japanese civilians who died in WWII. It is visited by many Japanese tourists and believers of Japanese buddhism every year.
