Shot at Matsuchiyama-Shoden, a Buddhist temple in Asakusa, Tokyo Tetsu Ozawa

One statue was facing away

The precinct of this temple which belong to the famous Senso-Ji was wrapped with the silence. Although there were many worshipers in the Senso-Ji even on the weekdays, few people came here. Its atmosphere appropriated for being called a sanctuary.

In the corner of the precinct, some statues of Jizo stood. Most of them were ranged except a statue. It looked the other way. And it seemed to adopt an attitude of uncynicalness.
