Ryusenji (lit. "Dragon Spring Temple") is a small, delightful temple near the entrance to Obata Ryokuchi Koen.
Ryusenji Temple (aka Ryuusenji) has connections with the local warlord Oda Nobunaga and also supposedly with Kobo Daishi, though nearly every place in Japan seems to be connected in one way or another with the latter. Ryusenji Temple is one of the top four temples associated with Kannon - the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy - in the Owari district of Aichi Prefecture along with Arako Kannon, Kasadera-Kannon in Minami-ku in Nagoya and Jimoku-ji near Tsushima, a suburb out to the north east.
