You can see this peach bust in the Seimei shrine along Horikawa dori in Kyoto. Here is the explanation of this Bust: In ancient China and Yin and Yang religion, peaches are said to be the fruit for talismans and to ward off evil. In the Kojiki and Nihon Kojiki (two famous works of ancient Japan) the images of people using peaches to chase away evil spirits can be seen. The bedtime story which most Japanese people know, Momotarou also derives from this belief.
