Hozenji Yokocho, Osaka

4.4
Taste the old days of Osaka at Hozenji Yokocho, set in a narrow stone-paved lane of the city’s bohemian quarter. An Edo-era row with gastropubs, cafes, and nearby old theaters, the alley makes a popular spot to sample the city's nightlife and taste some great food. Smell incense wafting from the Hozen shrine tucked in the alley off the busy main streets, and see the famous mossy Buddha, the "kami" of fury, now fully covered in moss. Stop for a prayer, pour water over statues, or find an eatery and hunt for souvenirs along the alley, which sits 5 minutes walk from Namba station, exit 14. Our Osaka online trip itinerary planner makes visiting Hozenji Yokocho and other Osaka attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Beautiful street for evening walk, albeit tight and short. But there is a beautiful temple and a moss-covered statue of Fudo Mioo, whose faithful are pouring water every moment. It is worth to look into every corner, because in these narrow passages that look like a hole in the fence, you can find additional attractions

  • If you go into the alley from Dotonbori, you will come across a cobbled street. In such a situation, Mr. Jizo is enshrined. Please discover it, and put water on it and visit.
