He is also called Hibuse-Jizo (fire-extinguishing deity) because of the legend that he saved a baby from a fire: they say Jizo was left with a scar on his cheek and on the left side of his robe and that it is still visible today. It has been said that he is one of the three greatest deities in Japan together with Konomoto of Kii and Konomoto of Ohmi. Konomoto Jizo (Mokugenji Temple)
