Joruriji is temple No. 46 on the Shikoku Pilgrimage. It stands among fields on a gentle slope in the south of Matsuyama. The temple building is largely hidden from view by the tall trees that surround it. These ancient junipers are thought to be about 1,000 years old. The grounds are composed of a beautiful, well-tended garden. Next to the main hall is a wisteria bower next to lotus ponds. The temple is believed to have a lot of divine favors, so it is also referred to as "Handyman of divine favors"Emon Saburo came from this area, and a stone monument is engraved with a haiku written by Masaoka Shiki.
