Small paper lanterns are decorated from JR Tatsuno station to Matsuokyo Valley, the home of fireflies. On the way there, a small and quiet temple stands on the right after the grade crossing.
This temple is “Kudokuzan Denpukuji Temple”, which is called “Temple of Fireflies”, famous for the power of matchmaking. It is a nice quiet spot to pray for matchmaking secretly and the number of visitors has been increasing in recent years.

 

If you seek a good match or cherish your partner, you can visit this temple before or after watching fantastic fireflies. There is also Mantokuyo(a memorial service with candle lights) at this temple.
