In the Meiji era, the factory staff revived the silk mill that was burned by the fire in the Tsutsukawa area.
However, when they went to travel to Tokyo with employees , they were infected by a Spanish cold and 42 people died after returning home.
The factory manager erected a bronze Buddha at that time to commemorate the employees.
During the Pacific War, bronze Buddhas were supplied as weapon materials and the stone Buddha Buddha was re built in 1945.
The height is about 4m with the pedestal. p>
