Known as the southern gate to Muroji Temple, Butsuryu-ji was founded in 850 by Kenne, disciple of Kukai, under the patronage of Okitsugu. A tea-grinding hand mill, said to have been brought back by Kukai from the Tang dynasty, has been preserved as the temple treasure and you can find wild tea plants growing in the premises. The temple has seven buildings and as it is closely affiliated with Muroji Temple, it also serves as a sub-temple for retirement of the chief priest of Muroji and lodgings for pilgrims to Muroji.
