Nyoirinji Temple was established all the way back in the year 729, when it was a place of worship for the goddess Kannon, but these days it's more famous as a "frog temple"! There are somewhere around 10,000 frogs of all shapes and sizes scattered throughout the temple grounds, living in the gardens throughout spring cherry blossom season and the fall foliage season. In summer, the temple holds its annual wind chime festival, where thousands of wind chimes are hung along and above the pathways. Visitors can listen to the relaxing tinkle of the wind blowing past, and write their summer wishes on the papers dangling below!
