Travel Guide - Yakuo-ji Temple (Ushiro-muki Jizo)

InformationInformation

A Jizo (guardian deity of children) statue in Yakuo-ji Temple used to face the Oshu-kaido Road, a main road which leads to Oshu Shirakawa (today's Shirakawa City in Fukushima), but a change in the path of the road meant that the Jizo on the roadside ended up with its back turned to the road.
According to legend, when the Jizo was rotated to face the right way, it turned right back to its original position overnight, thus giving its name "Ushiro-muki Jizo", or Jizo facing the wrong way.
