The dragon God shrine

Details

Murou, the home of clear streams situated deep in the mountains, was a sacred location where people prayed for rain and an area where the dragon gods had lived since ancient times. Ryuketsu-jinja shrine is located at the entrance to the valley a little way upstream along the Murougawa River from Murou•ji Temple and if you continue past the shrine, after 20 minutes or so you will come to the Dragon's Cave where the Dragon Gods who rule the rain and clouds are said to live where you will be enveloped in the mystical atmosphere.
