This is Enmei Jizo around 1867 before Haibutsukishaku (anti-Buddhist movement at the beginning of the Meiji era). Compared with the figure in catalogue #4603 taken after Haibutsukishaku, the intact halo, flanking jizo figures, and the stone lanterns are extant. According to Tokaido Hakone Sanchuzu printed in 1867 by Sadahide Gountei, there once existed many stone Buddhas and towers at Sainogahara on the shore of Lake Ashinoko.
