This lovely Kannon temple is located right near one of the entrances of the Osu Kannon shopping district where there are also lots of small restaurants and eateries all around so worth a visit because of it's location. The temple is quite grand with it's steps leading up to the main temple building and lots of banners hanging all around the entrance. In front there is the main gate building and a relatively small area with trees and statues and lots of pigeons.
We came to visit Nagoya’s famous buddhist temple. Aside from taking some picture, ended up to near shopping street like Dotonbori of Osaka and has lots of store and restaurants. It even has two Khomeyo stores. Over all it was hitting two birds with one stone.
Ōsu Kannon ⛩✨
Is one of my favorite places #nagoya. I frequently go there not just for shopping but also to relax. There are two sides of Osu Kannon. The quite side, which is the temple. And the crowded side, which the huge Shopping District.
Don't miss Osu when passing by Nagoya. Such a busy place! ✨
Osu Kannon Temple, also known as the Shinfu Temple, is the starting point for the development of Osu Shopping Street. The official name is “Beisheng Temple of Beiyeshan Zhenfu Temple”. It was originally in Dagu, and after Tokugawa Ieya was built in Nagoya, the whole temple was sent. The building moved to Dazu here. The surrounding city street front door town has also become a lively shopping district. During the Second World War, Nagoya was attacked by air and the temple was not spared. The Great Sorrow and the Five-storied Pagoda in the courtyard were built in the Edo period.
