What people are saying:

Ōsu Kannon Temple is one of my favorite places in Nagoya. Other It is such a popular temple in the city that many people visit it during holidays. They also have a lot of Doves flying around, and people can choose to feed them. During holidays and local festivals, the temple grounds usually have Food Stalls lining up. Foods in these food stalls are quite affordable. The best thing about visiting Ōsu Kannon is the fact that the Ōsu Kannon shopping district is just right next to it. So basically, you can go shopping right after you marvel at the beauty of the temple. How convenient is that?

    Disappointed

    After spending time at Atsuta Shrine and Honmaru Palace - this lovely old temple was a bit of a let down. A bit scruffy and too many pigeons!

Additional Information

Introduction

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.
