Unnecessary Wayspot Edit (Case at ,Yamanashi-Pref.)

Hi, @NianticGiffard .

I encountered an unnecessary application to move the Waypoint.

Title of the Wayspot:お地蔵さま


City: 2-24 Ooasumi,Fujiyoshida-City,Yamanashi-Pref.







This Jizo sits quietly in the background.

First of all, although the title and description of this Wayspot are about Jizo Bosatsu, the stone statue in question is not Jizo Bosatsu.

Wikipedia 地蔵菩薩 (Japanese Only)

If you copy and paste the Japanese word "地蔵菩薩" or "お地蔵さま" and do a Google image search, I think it will be obvious.

There are a few rules about the appearance of Jizo Bosatsu.

Characteristically, he has no hair on his head and wears no headgear.

The second problem is that even if the statue is not Jizo Bosatsu, it is placed near the house where the old man in the white shirt is facing in the photo above.

It is possible to assume that the place where this stone statue is located is the site of a private house.

The aforementioned Street View information proves that the proposed site to the north is the correct location where the statue is located.

As well as the first and second problems mentioned above, a third problem arises: why did the applicant intend to shift the location information to the south?

I do not know the intentions of the applicant.

However, I do know that the request to move the location is an unnecessary request.

I hope that you will be able to start your investigation.
