This is one of the ofuca that came with the senninbari mentioned in an earlier post.
I was wondering if someone might be able to identify the temple it represents?
Attached is the clearest picture I could take.
Thank you very much.
Tim

It's too blurry to read. It would be the name of the Buddha, not the temple, though.

Thank you Toritoribe. I've learned the ofudo is to
Jizo-son. The caption reads, “Scapegoat Ji-so son

Did you get the original Japanese phrase? I agree with Jizōson since the last three kanji would be indeed 地蔵尊, but "Scapegoat" doesn't seem correct to me.

EDIT:
"Scapegoat" might be the translation of 身代. So, it's possible.

EDIT2:
The second kanji looks like 通. If so, the first two kanji might be the location name (maybe the name of a street).
