Snapshots: Japanese zen


Jizo family

Even with the overcast skies and occasional raindrops, the visit to Auburn Pioneer Cemetery (now home to some of the original Japanese settlers of King County) yielded some nice photos, especially the jizo guardian deity statues. This particular story of the Kato family is very sad and can be found here.

Some close up shots from the statue on the left…

  1. I am the author of the Auburn Pioneer Cemetery Website that you linked to. Thank you for visiting my favorite cemetery and for your lovely photos of the Kato Family Jizo. Theirs is a particularly tragic story. It’s nice to see them remembered.
