    Many Jizo Bosatsu statues in red hat are seen in a national park in Japan. According to Japanese folk belief, red is the color for expelling demons and illness. Their roles are to save us from the demons of hell, to bring fertility, to protect children, therefore the Jizo is often dressed in red.
