Ruri means lapis lazuli in Japanese. It’s very beautiful name :).

Most of temples, they keep their principal image statues in their hall with much attention.
(There are many temples that their principal image statues keep hidden.)
This temple, the principal image statues is out. But this is very clean. 🙂

And, Ebisu(the god of wealth) is here.
