Hidari Jingoro’s Tombstone



Former Location:

Bancho, Takamatsu, Kagawa Prefecture (Jizoji Temple) 

Although the Nihon Rekishi Jiten (Historical Dictionary of Japan) indicates that Hidari Jingoro died in Takamatsu, there is no actual proof that the legendary woodcarver ever actually lived. This gravestone and lantern were moved here from Bancho, Takamatsu when they needed repair.
