    A bit hard to find - use Google Maps

    We were on our own walking tour of attractions in Osaka and we used Google Maps to navigate. This temple was difficult to find, at least for us. If you put it into Google Maps, we could get close but ...

    Small gem on a backstreet

    Small little gem on a backstreet, it's very modest but quite the site covered in moss. Open to the elements it's surprising how well its kept.

    Small. Nice temple

    This is slightly hidden but worth the find. You can go in for free. Watch others do the ritual and then you can try. You can add your own prayer for small donation. Worth the find.

Additional Information

Introduction

Hozenji Temple is a shrine tucked away from the bustling streets of Dotonbori. There are many restaurants and pubs located nearby, making the site extremely popular. Hozenji Temple pays homage mainly to Fudo Myoo, one of the Wisdom Kings. The statue of the deity in the center is covered in a green carpet of moss because the crowds will offer supplications by splashing water on the statue all year round. This has earned Fudo Myoo the nickname "Splashing Water Fudo," and it's a unique feature aspect to this temple.
