This is a really small temple that is visited by many people so pray a little and take it all in. It's just off the busy street of Dotonburi and it's worth a visit.

Hozen-ji is a quiet oasis for contemplation, tucked away in the craziness of Namba. Be still and savor the atmosphere and peace.

Just off the hectic Dotombori/Namba area this little shrine is a little corner of calm in the ocean of chaos around it.

The small temple is hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the major shopping streets. People throw water on the statues which encourages moss to grow. A sweet little place to take a moment.

This is a traditional temple close to Dotonbori. If you need a break from all the shopping you can drop in. There is a unique moss covered statue there which is the stuff of local legend.

Tucked away in the extremely busy dotonburi area of namba this temple brings a feel of Kyoto to suburban osaka. It's nice small temple suggested by cobbled streets and lots of restaurants. Make an offering at the moss covered statue for your wishes to come...More
