Hozenji Yokocho Tours

Hozenji Yokocho
Traveling to Osaka often feels like visiting the future with all its colorful neon lights and pulsing sounds, but strolling down Hozenji Yokocho — a narrow alley just south of bustling Dotombori, feels like stepping into the past. Excellent restaurants, izakayas and boutiques line this stone-paved street, lit at night in the soft glow of paper lanterns.

The alley’s most famous attraction is a small temple where devotees come to splash water over moss-covered statue of the Buddha. The temple was built in the seventeenth century in honor of Fudo Myoo, one of the Five Wisdom Buddhas.

Practical Info

Come hungry, as the restaurants located along Hozenji Yokocho enjoy an excellent reputation in Osaka.
Address: 1-2-16 Nanba, Osaka, Japan
