Her is a clebration of a gray snowy December day in Shimonoseki, Yamaguchi-ken. Hiking in the hills I encounterd a road side group og Jizo Bodisattva statues and a flock of Long-tailed Tits (Enaga) feeding in the snow coverd branches. { In Japan, Kṣitigarbha, known as Jizō, or respectfully as Ojizō-sama, is one of the most loved of all Japanese divinities. His statues are a common sight, especially by roadsides and in graveyards. Traditionally, he is seen as the guardian of children, and in particular, children who died before their parents. He has been worshipped as the guardian of the souls of mizuko, the souls of stillborn, miscarried, or aborted fetuses in the ritual of mizuko kuyō(水子供養 "offering to water children").] Wikipedia
