The Guardian deity of longevity (En mei Jizo)
This bronze statue was cast in 1863. The figure is holding a Buddhist ringed staff
in his right hand and a wishing jewel in his left. He is perched upon a lotus leaf with
his left leg hanging down.
This statue is modeled after Chuho Myosai, the 117th chief priest of Zuiganji
temple. Blessed with longevity, he devoted his unusually long life to young children,
providing sanctuary to them in times of famine. Made with voluntary contributions
from neighboring Shiogama and Ishinomaki in honor of Chuho Myosai's
achievements and long life, this colossal statue' is a rarity in this vicinity.
