You need to put the exact text as it is listed in the Meanings section, not just a part of a meaning. I.e. “Giant Buddha statue” is correct, “Buddha statue” is wrong. You can also add a user synonym if you like

I thought it means specifically 大仏 in 東大寺 in Nara.
Is that the only giant Buddha statue?
No, it refers to any large buddha statue. Nara is just the largest bronze daibutsu.

I’ve been to the one at Kotoku-in (Kamakura), the one at Todai-ji (Nara), and the one at Nihon-ji (Nokogiriyama - which, fun fact, is the tallest seated Daibutsu in Japan, and third-tallest overall). Plus the Hundred-Shaku Kannon also at Nihon-ji, which apparently doesn’t count as a Daibutsu.
The one at Nara was first, supposedly.
