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.

  • And of which the Gallery Kitano-mountain true happiness is called Osu Kannon Temple, hachirozaemon. Osu Kannon Station walking 1-2 minutes, very easy to reach tourist destinations because when traveling, to stop and think. The temple itself is not so big, but quite many worshippers, is busy. Right next to the entrance of the Mall so many locals and visitors alike, and is a popular spot.
