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.

Legend from Aichi 愛知県
知多郡 Chita district / 中国道 Chugoku do Road

Once a man was on his way home from a trip to the Ise Shrine. On the 中国道 Chugoku road a truck came the wrong way, hit his car and he was thrown out. He climbed out of his car and checked his body for injuries, but he did not even have a small scratch.
When he came home and checked his pocket, he found an amulet of Kobo Daishi substituting for humans - that has helped him !
