Hoshoin / Osukannon, Nagoya

3.4
A modest, red-lacquered Buddhist temple, Hoshoin / Osukannon remains known for its monthly flea market and profusion of pigeons. Originally built in the 17th century, the temple was unfortunately destroyed and had to be rebuilt in 1970s. Interestingly, it holds the only copy of the Kojiki--ancient chronicles of Japanese history and mythology--though the document remains out of public view. Take advantage of the photo opportunities among the pigeons and picturesque architecture. On the 18th of every month you can hunt for souvenirs at the flea market.

  • The first time on the New Year's Eve in Japan, I chose to listen to the big time, I was about 11 o ' clock to reach the big voice, many people have been very enthusiastic, many people lined up waiting for a visit, there are many snacks stalls bit, I eat all the way down the road, Japan to hit 108, to eliminate the pain, We have already made a roll to the public. It's good to be able to experience the culture of Japan by playing one of those 108.

Where to stay in Nagoya

The central district, just south from the castle and its gardens, houses the bulk of accommodations in Nagoya. You'll find a good range of standard hotels, with onsite restaurants, simple rooms, and perhaps a pool in this area. Look slightly to the west, or closer to the castle,to find more luxurious accommodations. Across the surrounding residential areas, take a look close to the metro stations to find some of the most conveniently located, but budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses.
