A temple hall where the Buddhist deity *Jizou ’n‘  (Sk. Ksitigarbha) is enshrined. He is a bodhisattva *bosatsu •ìŽF dedicated to rescuing souls trapped in realms of evil. He is especially popular as the protector of children and the souls of dead children. There is no established style of building to house a statue of Jizou. For example: A hexagonal (8.73m per side) building *rokkaku endou ˜ZŠp‰~“° at Choukouji ’·ŒõŽ› (1510), Aichi prefecture is a jizoudou. The Sanbutsuji Jizoudou ŽO•§Ž›’n‘ “° (Muromachi period) in Tottori prefecture, is 3~4 bays (6.33 ~7.92m), and is constructed in an overhang style kake-zukuri Œœ‘¢. It is identical to the *monjudou •¶Žê“° at the same temple. The Shoufukuji Jizoudou ³•ŸŽ›’n‘ “° (1407) in Tokyo, is an excellent example of a typical 5~5 bay (8.12 ~8.12m) Zen style building *zenshuuyou ‘T@—l. The Houryuuji Jizoudou –@—²Ž›’n‘ “° in Nara, is a small 3~3 bay (5.13~5.13m) bay hall in wayou style *wayou ˜a—l. The Shin'yakushiji Jizouodu V–òŽtŽ›’n‘ “° (Kamakura period) in Nara, is a 1~1 bay hall (3.05~3.05m) in ‚—ayou style.
