  • Breathtaking spot and atmosphere away from other touristy areas. Simply magical at night. If you do get the chance to go on New Years Eve, it’s fantastic though busy— but very cool to see all the...  more »
  • Loved the temple, and the walk to get there, green everywhere. Make sure you stop in the Mino Ware shop and see the beauty of the ceramic that the lovely lady produces there  more »
  • After buying a ticket & entrance, you the meet a beautiful gate in red color. It's a must to take a photo here before crossing the bridge over the pool. Just walking around this pool, there are many nice spots to take a cool photo. Before exit, don't forget to buy some local products as souvenir.
  • I’m very proud that this beautiful and gorgeous temple is in Mino city in Osaka, where I grew up. Katsu means victory in Japanese. This temple represents “victory” for anything. Winning doesn’t necessarily mean beating others. You can win against who you used be or who you were last year. You can win over your weakness or something you’re not very good at. When I was a kid, the baseball team I belonged to came visit this temple when New Year came every year and hoped we would play well and win each match in the year. It was our annual event. “Victory” is the keyword at this place. If you have something you’d like to achieve or “win” against, this is a must visit spot for you. So beautiful, spiritual and spectacular place. You’re always welcomed!!
