Osu Kannon

– Osu Kannon – 大須観音 –

Nagoya (名古屋) – April 23, 2017


I go to the Osu Kannon area a lot for Solo Pizza and shopping. It was built during the Kamakura period in Gifu Prefecture, but it kept getting damaged by floods so Tokugawa Ieyasu moved it to Nagoya in the 1600’s.

It houses a huge statue of Kannon made by Kobo Daishi, the founder of Shingon Buddhism.

This goshuin is in my Inuyama Castle Goshuincho.
