Temple 46: Joururiji

Joururiji is called the “Pure Emerald Temple”. This temple has endured since the 17th century and you can feel how old it is. Tucked away in the forest, complete with bamboo and palm trees around, this is a very lovely place to visit.

Here you can stand with bare feet on the Buddha’s footprints. Your tiredness, aches, and pains will disappear. Or so I am told. Give it a try! You have nothing to lose.
