I found many statues called Jizo in the precinct of Senkyo-Ji. There were Jizo, which were built for the memorial service called Mizuko Kuyofor those who have had a miscarriage, stillbirth, or abortion. Each statue had their own windmill.

When the wind blew, the wind mill spund around silently. All the statues were pressing their hands together in front of their chest. Although they cast amorous glances, their faces seemed unhappy. They could have mixed emotions.
