児宝地蔵尊

古よりこの地域は湯の町とよばれ自然湧出の温泉が旅人の心身を癒してきました 中でも諏訪の三名湯の一つと言われた「小湯」は湯質が柔らかく良く温まり「子宝に恵まれる」と広く知れ渡り 子授けの名湯「児湯」と呼ばれるようになりました 江戸時代「一七五六年」に高島城藩志岩氏が諏訪の名勝旧跡について綴った文献「諏訪かのこ」でも「気を巡らし血を補いよろず子をあらしむ」とその効能を称賛しております
近年 子授かり効能が見直され「児宝地蔵尊」として親しまれております

■The Compliant Jizo
A long time ago in Suwataisha Akimiya, there stood Jinguji which had enshrined the principal image of the Thousand Armed Avalokiteshwara (Senju Kannon). On the orders of the Meiji Ishin (Meiji revolutionaries) Jinguji was demolished under the decree that female Bodhisattvas and Buddhas shall be separated. So the Compliant Jizo was moved and re-enshrined in the Yakushijido Temple in Hagikura. But every night the Jizo is said to have wanted to return home to Jinguji and would move to face the direction of its former home, leading it to be returned there. It will comply with any wish that is heard, therefore earning the name "Compliant Jizo", and being devoutly cared for and believed in throughout the passage of fine. It is a rare Jizo because it is respected universally nationwide as the "Compliant Jizo".
