Hozenji Yokocho, Osaka

4.3
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.

  • In the quiet atmosphere of the bustling city streets that in itself is strange. Lake Chuzenji Yokocho, but easy to find the entrance to the second row way Yen to locate and look at pretty restaurant.

  • It is good, I feel the atmosphere always have Osaka people from the old days. Water hung 不動sann shrine and the water we had hung just like you. Cancelled, just wandering around the shops didn't have something like peace. This emotional landscape and landscape continues to rest forever.
