The statue had a Khakkhara and a Cintamani

Shot at Setagaya Kannon, a Buddhist temple in Setagaya, Tokyo.

Out of the gate of the temple, a statue of Kṣitigarbha was stationed. Ksitigarbha was called 'Jizo' or 'Ojizo-san' endearingly in Japan. Yet it was not given the place in the precinct in this temple. Seemingly, it didn't care about the fact. It stood majestically and watched the people passing through the approach way.

What it held in its left hand was Cintamani, a wish-fulfilling jewel within Buddhist traditions. In the other hand, it held a Khakkhara.
