Situated at the base of Mount Koya, in the small town of Kudoyama, in Wakayama prefecture, the Jison-in temple looks looks no different than any number of Japanese Buddhist temples. But step inside, and you will notice that all around the temple grounds are a unique type of offering that appears a little out of place for a site of spiritual reverence —female breasts.

These busty decorations made out of foam-stuffed fabric with beads for nipples hang from every corner of the complex. Other depictions of the female breasts include carved wooden blocks and paintings on wooden plaques.
