Traditional Japanese Osu Kannon in Nagoya. People came here to have a wish of wealth, prosperity, and learning.

By seeing the name, you know this is a Buddhism Temple, both Chinese and Japanese use the same word for the bodhisattva. It is a huge temple per se, but still worth visiting especially if you want to pray and make wishes for something in a traditional way. There is a pigeon feeding place next to it. So visitors with kid might be interested. The Osu Shōtengai Shopping District 大須商店街 is also close, on the extension of Kannon Street, it makes good sense to do some shopping and have some local snacks after this.

Definitely a must see when you visit Nagoya. The shopping street, especially, has a lot of thrift shops that have great finds. Whether you’re looking for clothes, stationery, or some trinkets to take back home from your trip, everything’s all here.

It's near a shopping district in Nagoya and also near the City Museum. It is a beautiful temple that can be crowded during weekends and holidays. It is also near a train station.

This is a nice and big temple dedicated to Guanyin within the busy and bustling Osu shopping street! If you are in the area, you will not miss this place. The temple is nice and is opened to the public and visitors can walk freely around. And what is interesting is that people will just buy the bread/biscuit crumps to feel the birds (pigeons I supposed) that are resting on the roof. They would then fly down in a swarm to eat and then fly up and flock together circling in the air for a while before taking rests at the rooftop. Entering the premise can let one to have some peace of mind from the noises outside, especially from the road and shopping street. For us, its consider cultural visit since we are not into the religion but find the temple building nice, filled with ancient feeling!
