mizukake-fudo MIZUKAKE-FUDO

What are the blessings offered here?

No matter what your request, this deity will provide its blessings and support. Particularly through the practice of pouring water, this site is said to bring prosperity in the “water trade” – or nighttime entertainment businesses – and the two childlike figures in front represent a couple, offering good luck in matchmaking. The fierce expression of the statue is also believed to ward off evil and bad spirits and traditionally is set amongst fire to symbolize purifying the hearts of all living things.

About Mizukake-fudo

Before the war, water was offered simply as the treasured source from which all life springs. However, one day a woman came entreating the deity of Mizukake-fudo to answer her sincere prayers and poured water on the statue in the process. This practice later spread among the people of Osaka and is now a long-followed tradition.
