Kannonji Temple Reviews
尾張四観音として、名古屋城から見て鬼門の方角の一つに位置することから、その鎮護としての役目を担う荒子観音。恵方の節分の日には大賑わいですが、普段は住宅街の中にひっそりと佇む憩いの場所。歴史は長く、重要文化財を有する仏閣です。 今回は往復ともに金山駅からバスで行きましたが、あおなみ線荒子駅や、地下鉄東山線高畑駅からも徒歩圏内です。 more »As Owari Shikannon, it is located in one of the directions of the demon gate as seen from Nagoya Castle, and Arako Kannon plays the role as the protection. It is a place of relaxation which usually stands quietly in the residential area though it is crowded on the day of Setsubun of Ekata. It has a long history and is a buddhist temple with important cultural assets. This time, we went by bus from Kanayama Station, but it is within walking distance from Arako Station on the Aonami Line and Takahata Station on the Higashiyama Subway Line.
荒子円空市が毎月第1日曜日に開催されます。おしゃれな移動販売の飲食店や素敵なクリエイターさんたちのお店が並びます。 more »Arako Enku city is held on the first Sunday of every month. There are stylish mobile restaurants and nice creators.
This was a nice temple located next to the park in the area. Very old wooden structures which is nice. The people minding the site were very kind. The old lady was nice and did my shrine stamp.
For being Nagoya’s oldest wooden structure and one of its older temple and shrine complex’s there is nothing to see here that won’t take more than 5-10 mins. There is nothing in the area as it’s residential. While it may hold historical value it offers no tourist value at all.
