Takatsuka Atago Jizoson Statue高塚愛宕地蔵尊
This is unusual even nationwide in that it indicates the syncretism of Shinto and Buddhism as a place of worship for Jizo, the guardian deity of children, while also having a torii gate and auxiliary shrine for Amaterasu Omikami, the sun goddess. Also known as “Takatsuka-san,” it is a place known for fulfilling prayers relating to various issues and attracts a great many visitors from all over the country.

Oita Main Areas
A trip to Oita is tantamount to a long soak in the Beppu baths. The mountainous, coastal prefecture of Oita is renowned for having more onsen than any other prefecture in Japan, most of which lie in the city of Beppu on the west coast of Kyushu, recognizable by its pungent sulphuric aroma and the clouds of steam that puff up across the hillside. Away from the Beppu hot springs await mountains, waterfalls, and temples, so don't hesitate to explore Oita a little further.
