3.-MIZUNOMI-RYU, Hidari Jingoro also made some sculpture at Sengen jinja..One of them is a Dragon..This dragon at a time of a fire, went down to the pond and extinguished the fire by splashing water from his mouth onto the palace..The dragon is found on the beam on the ROUMON gate by the main court yard..
