Each Jizo statue is lined up accordingly. There are varying shapes and sizes placed all over the place... We've also seen them clean each statue and made sure everything is in order. The shrine is midway through Mt. Kamakura in the Kanagawa prefecture. .
Over 50,000 of these are carefully placed all over the shrine grounds. They are offerings by parents who've lost a child due to still birth, miscarriage or abortion. They shall remain in place for one year before being relocated or returned to the parents after being prayed over at the temple. .
It was an amazing and slightly creepy experience... I don't wanna walk around here during night time. .
