Yanaizu Town

Enzo-ji Temple is an ancient temple standing alongside the Tadamigawa River, which flows through Yanaizu Town. It is said to have been built by Tokuitsu, the Father of Aizu Buddhism. It is also said to be the birthplace of the traditional Aizu toy known as Akabeko. Legend says that when a great earthquake destroyed the temple’s main hall, a herd of red cattle appeared to help rebuild it, and the Akabeko(red cattle) toy based on them became a symbol of change, perseverance, and power in addition to bringing luck.
