The Great Buddha Arrival is directed by Hiroto Yokokawa (Nezura 1964) and stars Philip Granger (Tucker and Dale vs Evil), Toshi Toda (Pearl Harbor), and Akora Takarada (Hedorah Silent Spring), to name a few.

Filmmaker Yoshiro Edamasa directed, produced and created the special effects for the film, who was a master of Eiji Tsuburaya, the man was responsible for films like Godzilla.
