Rokujizo Stone Statue六地蔵石仏

Other Historic Site/Building

This is a stone Buddha statue in Kujira, Gose City. This is a large rock carved with the figures of six jizo (guardian of children) located in the middle of the hill on the old road to the west side of Kamoyamaguchi Shrine. This area has been affected by flooding since ancient times and it is believed that the villagers carved the figures of jizo on the rock when it was washed to its present location in the Muromachi period.

Nara Main Areas

around-area-map

With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of “traditional Japan.” The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture's treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains' Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
