Au temple Zojoji, une section du cimetière est réservée aux parents qui désirent se recueillir à la suite d'une fausse-couche, d'un avortement ou quand un enfant est mort-né.

«Rows of stone statues of children represent the unborn children of Japan, including miscarried, aborted, and stillborn children. Parents can choose a statue in the garden and decorate it with small clothing and toys. Usually the statues are accompanied by a small gift for Jizō, the guardian of unborn children to ensure that they are brought to the afterlife.» Wikipedia
