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.
