Photographer's Note

...in front of Kiyomizu Temple...

Jizos are important figures in Japan and are usually pictured as child-monks. It is said, that they are a special protector of children, travelers, and women. Jizo is also known to help anyone who has lost a child. So Jizo becomes a powerful image of hope!
