Hoshoin / Osukannon, Nagoya

(3.3/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our online itinerary creator, Nagoya attractions like Hoshoin / Osukannon can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
