In Hakone, a movement to destroy Buddhist statues was seen after the official separation of Shinto and Buddhist rituals in 1868, and the Buddhist images by Ashino Lake were also damaged. In the picture, a tragic scene with a broken halo and the stone lantern torn down can be seen. This jizo still exists at Tokujoin in Odawara.
