Kamakura Kencho-ji's Hanzobo

Avatar God, accompanied by long-nosed goblins

The avatar God protecting Kencho-ji Temple is called Hanzobo. People believe Hanzobo has protective powers against fire, and the ability to bring good luck. Many bronze statues of long-nosed goblins are standing just before Hanzobo Shrine. Goblins have magical powers, and in addition, no one is a match for them in swordsmanship. Those goblins serve Hanzobo.
