Namikiri Fudoson
Also known as Mizu-kake Fudo Myo'o, this deity was unearthed at Matsu 1-chome in 1939. It stands approximately 150 cm tall, and was placed next to Saihoji in the same year as its discovery. Its surroundings were destroyed by fire in the numerous air raids during WWII; however, Namikiri Fudoson itself escaped damage. The deity thus gained a reputation as being able to grant wishes, and the number of worshippers grew daily.
