Ōsu Kannon Temple (大須観音)

Being one of Nagoya's oldest Buddhist temple, Osu Kannon is a popular landmark in central Nagoya. It was originally built in the neighboring Gifu Prefecture but due to the temple being severely damaged after a big flood, the the temple was moved and reconstructed at its current site by Tokugawa Ieyasu, the first shogun of the Tokugawa shogunate at the time, in 1612.

The main object of worship at the temple is a wooden statue of Kannon, the goddess of mercy. Underneath Osu Kannon's main hall is the Shinpukuji Library which contains over 15,000 classic Japanese and Chinese texts. Among these texts are several national treasures and important cultural properties.
