With about 5,000 frog statues collected from all over the world, Nyoirin-ji Temple is famously known as the "Frog Temple." Since the time that the temple master brought back a jade statue of a frog from China, the temple has increased the number of frog statues, welcoming the visitors with frogs in interesting poses. From small and large stone statues to talismans, paper fortunes, and souvenirs, everything is about frogs, making the temple a fun place somewhat like a frog-themed park. Frogs always jump forward to achieve their purposes, so this temple hopes that visitors can always be positive and forward-looking. The temple is also known as a place with beautiful flowers and foliage throughout the year, especially in autumn when Japanese maple leaves turn red to beautifully ornament the landscape.
