Shitennoji Koshindo Reviews
The temple is very old and looks rather simple. It is not crowded. There was a pleasant smell of incense in the air during my visit. The compound is very peaceful and pleasant. more »
Not the nicest temple that we have been in Japan but what is really special is the local flea market on every 21 and 22 of the month. Lots of stalls selling local products and snacks. Worth a visit... more »
Interesting to have a Buddhist temple which carries a lot of heritage value in the middle of a busy town like Osaka. If comparing to Kyoto, people go to Kyoto expecting to see temples like this, but when it comes to Osaka, people come for the food, shopping and general party life, if you are into that sort of thing. Having an old temple like this in Osaka brings you away from the busy city to explore the ancient for a moment. Highly recommend for those visiting Osaka. Do spend about half a day here.
It's an amazing place. You can walk around and sit on bench as well. Even though the temple closes, you can still take amazing pics and see surroundings. Btw, it closes at 4:30 PM. Entrance fee is 300 Yen. Enjoy!
