About this sight

Established over 1,200 years ago, Takatsuka Atago Jizoson is a temple which features over 2,000 'Jizo-son' statues and attracts a large number of both domestic and international visitors.

It is quite unusual in that it amalgamates elements of both Shintoism and Buddhism as a place of worship for Jizo (the guardian deity of children).
