mayoke migawari dorei 魔除身代り土鈴
clay bell warding off evil

From Lake Tazawako, Akita

It shows the statue of princess Tatsuko 辰子姫伝説, from a famous legend of the lake.

うつせみは 願いをもてば あわれなりけり 田沢の湖に 伝説ひとつ

The inscription is a waka poem.

Once upon a time, a beautiful princess called Tatsuko, was living near Lake Tazawa. When, in order to keep her beauty forever, she drank the water of a source by following a revelation of Goddess Kannon, suddenly she transformed herself into a big dragon. Since then, she became the master of Lake Tazawa and has been hiding at its bottom until our day.
