3.9/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web
In the midst of a bustling city and neon lights, Hōzen-ji Temple offers some quiet respite. Founded in 1637 by a monk named Kinnun, the temple honors the god of fury, Fudomyoo. Devotees come to worship and splash the deity, resulting in a thick layer of soft moss covering the statue. A stone-paved alley surrounds the small shrine, while numerous restaurants, pubs, and bars nearby keep the ambiance vibrant. Highlights include a stone tablet and signs with haiku poems by artists and poets who used to frequent the area.

  • 位於道頓堀其中一條小巷的角落,地理位置好方便,只係道頓堀太多橫街小巷,如果無留意好易行過咗。 在鬧市中的寺廟,個感覺都幾特別,又幾熱鬧,值得去睇下。 特別想提到旁邊的夫婦善哉紅豆湯,背後個故事幾浪費,天氣凍時食碗熱辣辣紅豆湯暖下身都好舒服。 
  • 露天潮濕且有許多人朝神像澆水,因此形成了神像被青苔覆蓋的特殊景象,位於商店街中,有清楚的指標,很容易找,有名的甜點店就在旁邊。 
  • When you want to be in the little person in the crowd, and if you are want to talk. Come in handy. It is surrounded by Seki Jack's unique sense of space.
