Jizou

Posted by Stu (From Scotland | Living in Kyoto, Japan) on 14 February 2014 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

Hodo-ji (宝幢寺) is a small local temple in the north-east of Kyoto. While not a any tourist map, the maple here do offer nice colours to the visitors in autumn. A few jizo (地蔵) statues with funny poses can also be found here and there on the premises. Other images from Hodo-ji can be found here and here.

I hope that because of his great wisdom, this one doesn't give head butts during finals of world cups. One of the pictures of the day to me.
