Since it’s construction 1,300 years ago, Nyoirin Temple has been loved as ”Frog temple”. According to mythology, the temple was colored in frog color after the chief priest who came back from China with a jade frog figurine placed the jade in the temple precinct. Frog statues are everywhere in the temple, including big frog statues imitating Nio statue on both sides of the gate. Enjoy the change of four seasons here with rhododendrons and azaleas in the spring, hydregeas in the summer and fall colors.
