Mound of Buddha images

Abstract

The inscription on the stone pillar says that this mound is comprised of images dedicated to the spirits of people who died without anyone who directly cared for them. Such beings are called "muenbotoke," or "deceased ones without connections." So in addition to grave sites for familiar loved ones, some Japanese Buddhists have felt the need to erect memorials for those who were not fortunate enough to have someone to remember them when they died.
