Abstracts
General urbanization and rapid depopulation of villages left many Japanese rural households and communities without the young generation. Changes in lifestyle are reflected in rural traditions and religious practices. This shift in practices and meanings of folk beliefs in the modern Japanese society is well evident on the example of Jizō bosatsu, buddhist deity, protector of children, pregnant women and travelers. This essay explores and identifies the concepts and practices associated with the phenomenon of Jizō worship in Japan in the past and the present, with particular emphasis on the commercialization of the phenomenon through mizuko kuyō rituals.

Keywords
Boddhisattva Jizō; japanese folk religion; mizuko kuyō cult
