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.

  • This is a beautiful shrine, just outside the mall, the road will arrive, the photo is very good. A big one. It's close to the train station. The traffic is convenient, the flow of people is not imagined much.

  •  Precinct is crowded with people and pigeons.  Entering from the OSU shopping district next to the bustling fun and extension. That would be where shopping and suit alive most of popular culture. Is available from Osu Kannon Station, not from kamimaezu station, shopping and explore the fun together.

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.
