Jizo Pressing Hands Together In Senkyo-ji

Jizo statue in Senkyo-Ji

Many Jizo stood in the precinct

Shot at Senkyo-Ji, a Buddhist temple in Yakage, Okayama.

I found many statues called Jizo in the precinct. There were Mizuko Jizo, which were built for the memorial service for 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.
