Jizo on Mt. Koya, Japan Aug 5, 2008 posted by lindabachrach
These are the charming ''jizo'' statues I saw in the Buddhist cemetary on Mt.Koya, the headquarters of Shingon Buddhism. They often wear red bibs and little wooly hats knit for them by volunteers. They are the protectors of children and travellers. Mt. Koya or Koyasan is the most fascinating place I have visited in Japan and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Not so easy to get to, but definately worth a two-day stay.
