Nikko Kanmangafuchi is a deep gorge created by the erosion of the lava of Mt. Nantai by the rough flow of Daiya River. Hundred Jizo (guardian deity of children) stand at this site. Most of the Jizo are intact, and the main Jizo faces the front as portrayed in the photo. Many of the Jizo were destroyed in the flood of 1902.
