The Kanman Gorge in Nikko was created by erosion of the rocks of Mt. Nantai by the rapid stream of the Daiya River. Hundred Jizo stand here. Most of the Narabi Jizo still exist, and the Oya Jizo standing at the head is also seen in the photo. A monument to Hayashi Razan stands near the big trees along the river. Many of the Narabi Jizo and Oya Jizo as well as the monument were destroyed in the flood of 1902.
