Traveler’s Guardian Deity

Along my merry way in my neighborhood, I am always entreated by these Deities guarding the traveler. And indeed, for the thoughtfulness of the ones who created and set up these in order to “guard and protect” the wary travelers on the way.

道祖神、どうそしん (dousoshin),
塞の神、さいのかみ (sainokami),
障の神、どうそじん (dousojin),
さえのかみ (saenokami)
