The Jizo, enshrined in Seki Jizo-in, is considered to be the oldest in Japan. They were worshiped by travelers on the Tokaido Road since ancient times. It is said that one of the most famous monks in Japanese history was involved in the opening ceremony (the ceremony of bringing souls to the Buddha) after its repair. The beautiful belltower is designated as an important cultural asset.
