Hozenji Yokocho, Osaka

4.1
#5 of 109 in Historic Sites in Osaka
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. Put Hozenji Yokocho at the forefront of your travel plans using our Osaka vacation planner.

    The alley is too short for that. But even in this place, an unusual experience for a short short-di can be enough. If you're a music night at night because the smell of food never overly open and Korean. Spirited away at Chihiro's mom and dad not to shop and eat too much, you will not be able to blame Dan.

    Nice cosy and quiet, very friendly to foreigners but not a lot of tourists. Great tasting food. Definitely pop in for a bite and a beer if you're in the area.

Where to stay in Osaka

The majority of Osaka's moderate and expensive accommodations concentrate in the districts of Umeda, Kyobashi, Namba, and Shin-Osaka. Base your stay in or near Minami neighborhood for proximity to a wide selection of shopping and dining options. For quick access to long-distance transportation to other cities and areas, look for hotels in Kita district. Many backpackers prefer the budget options in the Tennoji area, where the quality of rooms and prices vary wildly--call or check websites of specific establishments before you make reservations.
