Ryotan-ji Temple

Ryotan-ji Temple has long been visited by worshippers who believe in the temple's ability to heal worms in children. It is also said that the statue of the blue-faced spirit Shomen Kongo in the Koshin-do Hall has strong powers against illness and demons. The garden in front of the temple hall is designated a scenic spot by Kyoto Prefecture, and the relaxing temple grounds are also known for their use as a film location.
