These may be the steps leading to the main building of Jokomyoji Temple. The main Buddha is the Yahiroi Jizo which is said to be the Nenji Buddha (Buddha for daily worship) of Ashikaga Naoyoshi. According to legend, when Ashikaga Naoyoshi had used up all of his arrows, a young priest stepped forward holding one of his used arrows. Naoyoshi was puzzled, and when he looked at the Jizo it was holding an arrow along with its cane.
