Ishida Jizo in Soanji Temple

After Saifukuji Temple, I went to Soanji Temple. The purpose of visiting Soanji Temple is to see the Buddhist Statue of Jizo Bodhisattva (Bosatsu). The statue is called Ishida Jizo. The name derives from Mitsunari Ishida, a famous samurai. It is said that he always prayed to the Jizo Bosatsu statue.

People have images that Mitsunari Ishida was intelligent and he was a righteous person. When I stood in front of Ishida Jizo, I saw an intelligent look on its face.

In addition, I thought that its eyes were pure. The pure eyes proves that Mitsunari Ishida was a righteous person.
