This beautiful red cow in papier-mâché represents a legendary animal from the Aizu region. The legend says that after the construction of the Enzo-ji Temple, a red cow called "Akabeko" (Aka=red and Beko=cow in Aizu dialect) refused to leave the temple, showing a great devotion to Buddha.

These statuettes are very popular in Fukushima prefecture because it is said that they protect from the diseases. Indeed, when Japan suffered a smallpox outbreak, the children who had thoses cows did not catch the disease.

This Akabeko carries two boxes of Senryo, an old Japanese money. For sure, this Akabeko will bring you prosperity and protection!
