Phoenix Konzoji Temple in the Hiyoshi area of Yokohama is a part of the Tendai Sect of Japanese Buddhism, once upon a time a powerful force with its own militia and Shogun protectors. What makes Konzoji Temple unique are the cartoonish bas reliefs of dragons, "hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil" and far more colour than the usual austere sensibilities of Japanese temple motifs.
