Hoshoin / Osukannon, Nagoya
(3.3/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • Kannon Temple is very famous in Nagoya. Is our time-honored Kojiki manuscripts catalogued Japan 3 Taikan sound of Kannon. This is located near the OSU shopping district too much fun. Take a look at OSU Kannon Temple in, Mairi!

  • On Sunday I went to OSU to walk after lunch. Indian summer coat walked leaves town with good hands.  Goddess's shrine to pigeons. Looking back on the Lantern was a front. I would find out that memorable. This day is over 10000 steps lightly.
