Mimuroto Temple is the 10th temple of the Saigoku Kannon pilgrimage. The temple is known for its pretty seasonal flowers. In spring, you can see the azalea and rhododendron; in early summer, the hydrangea; in summer, the lotus flowers; and in autumn, the pretty fall colors. The Koma-usagi (rabbit) statue in front of the main hall is 150cm tall, 90cm wide, and made entirely from granite. The ball in the rabbit's hands is 60cm wide and contains an oval-shaped rock. It is believed that if you can make the oval rock stand, your wish will come true. In the temple, you can also find the Koma-hebi (snake) statue, the snake god of wealth and good luck. Touching the statue is said to bring you wealth and good luck.
