miniature circuit on Takoasan

In 1903, a Shingon priest had just finished the 88 temple henro 遍路 (circuit) of Shikoku. Inspired, he established a miniature circuit on Takoasan, which he marked with 88 small buddhas along the way. Here is a small statue of Dainichi as one of them. They all look identical but have different titles inscribed.
