Korinji temple(香林寺)

Temple of the Way of Happiness and the Twelve Zodiac Signs of Wishful Thinking and Success Daruma.

The temple is famous as a 'wishing temple' and many visitors come from within and outside the prefecture every year to make their wishes. Visitors make three rounds of the Path of Happiness in the Garden of the Twelve Zodiac Signs and make a wish in front of a statue of their own or a family member's zodiac sign. In addition to making a wish, there are other activities such as putting a wish ball into the 'Shusei Daruma'.

During the autumnal equinox season(Mid- to late-September), the white higanbana flowers grow in clusters, attracting the largest number of visitors of any time of year.
