Jizo Statues

This is a row of about 70 stone statues of Jizo, a Bodhisattva who cares for the deceased. This particular group of Jizo statues is alternately called "Bake Jizo" (Ghost Jizo), "Narabi Jizo" (Jizo in a Line), or "Hyaku Jizo" (100 Jizo). These statues look over the Kanmangafuchi Abyss near central Nikko. We got to see these statues right before sunset and it was a truly unique experience and oddly haunting.


Success! Message received.
