Temple 36: Shouryuuji

Lush and green, nestled in the mossy hills and up the ragged steps you will come to Shouryuuji, the “Green Dragon Temple”. The environment is fantastically beautiful. Temple buildings, pagodas, bamboo forests, and the stairs dotted with statues and path markers. Shouryuuji is truly a highlight for any pilgrim. This temple houses the “Dragon Fudou”, and it looks very fierce indeed.
