Recommendation by Lemi

Make your way to Ōsu Kannon Temple to encounter the wooden statue of Kannon, the goddess of mercy! The popular Buddhist temple was originally located in Gifu Prefecture before it was moved to its current site in central Nagoya. Upon entering the main hall, you’ll find a giant red lantern where worshipers tie small notes with their wishes written on them. Once you’ve left your own wish, head to the edifice’s special library to peruse over 15,000 classic Japanese and Chinese texts!
