Army Of Jizo With Drooping Eyes

All the Jizo statues had droopy eyes

Many small Jizo statues were lined up on the grounds of Hasedera. They were all smiling and holding a sacred gem in their hands. It was a good thing that there were so many of them, but the fact that all of them are smiling in the same way was a bit odd, depending on how you look at it.

If you are caught by their smiles and lend them a bridge, it looks as if the main house will be taken away from them as well. There is a saying that "the road to hell is paved with good intentions," and the person leading the way must be smiling as sweetly as this Jizo.
