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

the temple is simple and small, there is not much to see, the main objective, would be to make your prayers, simple but very interesting, is next to the store aisle

Nothing much around here. Not sure is it because we went during weekdays. Some shops are not even in business.

This is a major Shingon Buddhist temple where the statue is said to have been carved by the saint Kobo Daishi himself. The grounds are expansive and the temple itself is quite beautiful.

Despite being in the middle of residential and shopping but very well maintained and clean. Easy to find, close to the station.

Close to subway, small temple but next to shopping street so good to visit. The main hall has a large, red paper lantern hanging from the ceiling where worshipers can tie small paper notes with wishes to the holding wires.

Like the title say, it's a Chinese temple which means there're some statue to see. However there's no English description at all. I think it's a good place to visit if you are going to the nearby shopping area, osu shopping area.

Not only that you'll be praying respects to the holy spirit here, there're also plenty to see at the nearby market. A lot to do for half a day.
