These 74 jizo statues are called the ghost jizo, because supposedly you can never count how many are there, because once you get to the end and count back, some jizo disappear and the number will change.
Carved between 1536-1643 by the disciples of Tenkai, there were 100 until the Flood of 1902.
Some are very worse for wear, being no more than a pile of rocks with a little red knitted hat, but still attract offers of Yen on their aprons.

In Tokyo at Zojo-ji there are virtually thousands of stone statues, here in a less dynamic number but a far better environment are these red-capped stone carvings, Listed as a stone garden.

This place is a good place for nature lover to walk as there are not that many tourist who comes to this place. It’s near a botanical garden and there’s an abyss that has a row of 70 Jizo statues that are line up here. Worth the visit and to enjoy the nature

We were very glad our private guide, Takano san suggested to spend a few minutes in this site. Not a very famous place for tourist like the World heritage shrine in the location.

What we like was the freshness of air and the calmness in the spot. Surrounded by cider trees, it was like you are in a spa. The sound of water running through the small stream was just magnificent. The statues or Jizo itself adds the uniqueness of the spot. Don’t miss it if you visit Nikko

Located aside de Daiyagawa river. Statues in stone, set in row of about 100 meters long. Each one of the statues has its own history and meaning. Statues face the river and are across the Botanical Garden of Nikko. There is a curious story that if you count the statues, you never get the same outcome, as there are some that have lost their heads. Another story is thar they are protectors of souls and unborn children. Recommended visit.

Not so popular with the tourists, this spot is perfect for a walk among wonders of nature. Located near botanical garden, the Abyss creates a path of 70 Jizo statues - amazing view. You can sit near them and enjoy the view of the spring. But save some time to find the spot. It's not in the main tourist area.
