Temple 58: Senyuuji

It is said that a hermit by the name of Abou lived here for about 40 years until his sudden and mysterious disappearance. This temple is very beautiful and sprawling. It is located 1,300 feet above sea level and a bit of a hike to get to. On the path leading to the temple there are many statues of Kannon.
