Red clad jizos dot the landscape at Okunoin, considered one of the most sacred places in Japan. People from all over the country who wish to be buried close to Kobo Daishi lie there, including former feudal lords, politicians and other prominent personalities. Their graves line the approaches to Okunoin for several hundred meters through the forest.
