Jizo Bodhisattva's compassionate wish to save all sentient beings in the six paths has been translated into the unique "Six Jizos" belief in Japan. In the Jogaku Zen Sutra of the Taittiri school (created by the Dharma Masters), they are referred to as the Great Solid Jizo, the Great Pure Jizo, the Pure and Immaculate Jizo, the Great Light Jizo, the Great Virtuous and Pure Jizo, and the Great Fixed Wisdom and Compassion Jizo. Rokujizo is very common in Japan.

In addition, Japanese people believe that Jizo Bodhisattva has the divine power to protect the boundary between this world (the present world) and the next world (the underworld), so Buddhism and Shinto beliefs have combined to form the custom of enshrining a statue of Jizo Bodhisattva at the entrance of a village, and Jizo Bodhisattva has become the guardian deity of common people's lives.
