Hakone Meiji 1890s Unknown

Praying at a statue of the Buddhist deity of Jizo in Hakone, Kanagawa Prefecture.

Known as the Rokudo Jizo (六道地蔵), it is a 3.5 meter tall Buddha figure carved on a rock face (磨崖仏, magaibutsu), dating from the Kamakura period (1185-1333).

The statue faces Lake Shojin (精進池) at the foot of Mt. Kamifutagoyama (上双子山).

From a series of glass slides published (but not photographed) by Scottish photographer George Washington Wilson (1823–1893). Wilson’s firm was one of the largest publishers of photographic prints in the world.
