We came here by accident as the taxi driver drop us here when we wanted to go to Osu Shopping Street. One of the many typical Temple in Japan. This is a small one. You can pay this a visit before proceeding to Osu Shopping...More

This is a good short stop-over for Kannon followers and temple architecture fans. A well-known worship place for the locals. The shopping arcade next to it hosts merchants selling local handcraft merchandises and local delicacies.

Easy accessible by subway. Temple is not big but nice to visit. There is a small shopping arcade right next to the temple.

This is perhaps one of Nagoya's oldest temples and it shows. The temple needs some upkeep and restoration. The painting of the exterior is faded and the surroundings is not very clean. In contrast, the inside of the temple is beautiful in gold color!

A nice Shrine to visit while in Nagoya. Not large but still interesting. There was a fair sized crowd there despite being the middle of a work day. It is close to a shopping street area. The building was beautiful.

Lovely Buddhist temple right outside the Osu Kannon Shopping Arcade. I am not religious, but I love the grounds and ambiance of this temple.

If you happen to be here, probably to visit the adjacent shopping mall / shopping streets, then visit this temple also. It's a nice place to spend 15 minutes at but it's just not special. If you've been to Kyoto or to the Senso-ji Shrine...More
