A photo taken at Saijoji Temple, Mt. Daiyu (located in present-day Minami Ashigara City). Priests, chigo (children in a Buddhist procession) and donated bells are seen in the photo. The tengu (long-nosed goblin) is the symbol of Mt. Daiyu. This statue does not exist at present, probably due to contribution to the government during World War­¶. This photo may date back to the mid-Meiji era. Chigo wore hakama (long kimono trousers) before World War­¶.
