This is Hakone Rokudo Jizo. The photo taken by French captain Louis Kreitmann who traveled Japan between February, 1876 and May 1878 shows the shack-like frame around the jizo. However, it is not visible on this photo. Thus, this must have been taken after that period. This jizo, carved in 1300, was the biggest magaibutsu (a Buddhist image carved into the surface of natural rock) in Kanto region during the Kamakura Period.
