Photographer's Note

Kanmangafuchi Abyss is known for its row of about 70 stone statues of Jizo, a Bodhisattva who cares for the deceased. This particular group of Jizo statues is alternately called "Narabi Jizo" (Jizo in a line) or "Hyaku Jizo" (100 Jizo). It is called “Baké-Jizo” because it is said that they are uncountable; if you try to count them, each time you will end up with a different number.

The statues look out over the river and across to the Nikko Botanical Garden. Kanmangafuchi was formed by an eruption of nearby Mount Nantai. This gorge near central Nikko is only a few hundred meters long and can be enjoyed from a pleasant riverside walking trail.
