Hozenji Temple(Mizukake Fudo-son)

 At this temple, people splash Mizukake Fudo-son Buddhist Statue, with water instead of placing offerings. The origin of this practice is said to be that worshippers who did not bring offerings splashed the statue with water. Due to  the large amount of water that worshippers have splashed on the statue over the years, lots of moss has grown there giving the statue a beautiful green appearance.
