Temple sights in Nagoya

The much-visited Ōsu Kannon temple traces its roots back to 1333 and was considered so auspicious that Tokugawa Ieyasu ordered it moved here around 1610. Although the current buildings are 20th-century reconstructions, it still retains a traditional atmosphere. Chanting is often piped throughout the temple grounds.
Ōsu is equally famous for the vibrant shopping district just east, which draws bargain hunters.
