Shusse Jizo in Ginza

2010_10160004

Shusse Jizo (銀座出世地蔵尊) and Mimeguri Shrine (三囲神社;the rightmost of the above photo) are on the 9th floor of Ginza Mitsukoshi department store.
Mimeguri Shrine is dedicated to the God of the Mitsui family (founders of Mitsukoshi).The main shrine of it is near to Mukojima Kototoi bridge.

Shusse Jizo is said to be unearthed in this area about 140 years ago.  It has been placed here since 1968.  It symbolizes luck, success in life, long life and prosperity in business.

I bought a hand-carved wooden "Netsuke (根付)" of this Jizo.  It has a gentle face, indeed.
