Saigan-ji Temple (Aburakake Jizo)
Saigan-ji was founded by the monk Unkai Shonin in 1590. It is also known as the "Aburakake Jizo", and the name comes from a tale of an oil seller from Yamazaki who prospered after he poured oil on to a Jizo statue. Since then,it is said that people who pour oil onto this Jizo will receive good luck and prosperity for their business, and many worshipers exist still today. The shining black Jizo from the oil poured by visitors wishing for good luck is a unique sight. In the temple there is also a monument of a poem that is read by Matsuo Basho. It is also worth noting that there is a different temple also named Saigan-ji in Fukakusa of Fushimi-ku.
