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.
