Fudo Myo at Jimyoin Betsuin Temple


Regular readers will easily recognize this as a statue of Fudo Myo, far and away the most numerous deity statue featured in my blog.

All these shots come from the Jimyoin Betsuin Temple in the mountains near Sasaguri, Fukuoka.

Along the 88 temple miniature Henro pilgrimage in the area, but not one of the temples of the pilgrimage.

Fudo is the honzon, or main deity of this temple.

I have never come across so many Fudo statues in such a concentrated area anywhere else in Japan as along this pilgrimage.

We visited on our way down the mountain towards the end of our first day walking the pilgrimage
