Churenji

Come face to face with a self-mummified priest and ceiling art that changes depending from which angle you look at it. Contemporary famous people’s representations are painted on the ceiling in the back “modern section”. Don’t forget to examine the beautiful woodcraft of the temple and the splendid view.
