joroo-kai Jizo 女郎買地蔵 Joro-kai Jizo buying a prostitute
at the temple 大雲寺 Daiun-Ji in 桶川宿 Okegawa town (Postal station Nr. 6 on the Nakasendo Road)

女郎買い地蔵 - This state has been put in place in 1557.

Okegawa was quite a busy postal station and had many brothels. Not only the travellers, but also locals frequented these places. Soon there was the rumor that even the Jizo statue of the temple was out there enjoying himself. So the head priest tried to solve the problem. He fixed a clamp on the back of the statue and used a chain to bind it.
Since then, the Jizo did not move any more.



To tell the truth (maybe?) there was a young priest in the temple who went out every night . . . but got stopped when he saw his master fix the Jizo to teach him a lesson and save him.
The clamp on the back of the statue can be seen to our day.

komochi Jizo 子持ち地蔵 Jizo pregnant, with children



向宿の子持地蔵
(昭島市福島町2丁目) - Oku-Tama

昔、近所の子供たちがお地蔵様を持ち出し、裏の中沢堀で一緒に水遊びをして遊んでいた。それを見た大人が「お地蔵様を粗末にしてはいけない」と子どもたちを叱った。がその夜、「せっかく遊んでいたのに、一人ぼっちにさせた」と言ってお地蔵様が悲しんだという言い伝えがある。
とにかく子どもが好きなお地蔵様で赤ん坊の夜泣き、夜尿症、病気などに霊験があるらしい。

at 自性院 Jisho-In - 西落合

. Gofunai Henro Temple Nr. 53 .
Once in Edo there lived a man in Ushigome. He had a beloved cat, but the animal died and he was very sad.
Jizo Bosatsu appeared in his dream and advised him to go to the temple Jishoo-In 自性院 Jisho-In to see the high priest 鑑秀上人. He told him to have the statue of a cat erected.
A kind of migawari, he takes on our illness and problems.

Tsunbo Jizo
- quote -
. . . . . TSUNBO JIZŌ 聾地蔵 (lit. = Deaf Jizō)
of Komagome 駒込 (Hongo, Tokyo) helps when one suffers from persistent coughing. The people believe that, since Jizō is deaf, he cannot hear their prayers; it is therefore necessary to send them to him in writing, either by post, or by placing the written paper on the waters of a river or the sea.
This Jizō is thought to be a great lover of sake and a cure is more likely if he is promised a bottle.”

京都市南区唐橋羅城門町 - Kyoto
Karahashi Rajomoncho, Minami Ward, Kyoto

In 824 during a drought, Emperor Junna 淳和天皇 (786 - 840) ordered Kukai Kobo Daishi, priest at the Eastern Temple 東寺 To-Ji, and priest Shubin 守敏, head priest at the Western Temple 西寺 Sai-Ji, to perform rain rituals at the sacred park Shinsen-En 神泉苑.
Shubin did the rituals first, but no rain fell to ease the drought.
Next Kukai did the rituals - and whow, it rained for three days and three nights.
This is known as the "Rain Ritual Fighting" 雨ごい合戦 in the records of Kukai.

But Shubin was quite angry at this outcome. He waited in ambush at the Rashomon gate and tried to shoot an arrow at Kukai to kill him.
At this moment a monk in a black robe appeared and protected Kukai, catching the arrow with his hand. The monk was a personification of Jizo Bosatsu.
