Shoruji is temple No. 36 on the Shikoku Pilgrimage, located on a peninsula jutting into the Pacific Ocean. Pilgrims used to have to reach the temple by ferry, but in 1975 a bridge was built. The deity of the temple is is venerated as the guardian of fishermen. Shoryuji is known as the “Green Dragon Temple”. The environment is fantastically beautiful with bamboo forests and stairs dotted with statues and path markers. Shouryuuji is truly a highlight for any pilgrim. This temple houses the fierce “Dragon Fudou”.
