Shitenno Ji - Review

Shitennoji is one of Japan's oldest temples. It was established and built in the year 593 by Prince Shotoku (famous for supporting the introduction of Buddhism to Japan). Having a rough history, the temple's buildings were burned down several times throughout the centuries. The present temple was, however, reconstructed to reflect the original 6th century design. Near the temple is the Gokuraku-jodo Garden. And within the temple grounds stands a treasure house that displays paintings, scriptures and other valuable belongings of the temple.

Shitenno Ji, Osaka Reviews

  • A huge temple in Osaka. Not as crowded as other touristy spots in Osaka. Quiet and peaceful temple. Entrance fee was 300 yen.

  • This tourist spot is easy to find, near the subway and well-maintained. Although the time I get here is after 5pm so the main gate of the pagoda is closed but the neighborhood looks clean and quiet. I found some vacated food stalls looks like this place is a food buzz during the day.

  • Less crowded than most tourist site or temples in Osaka. Very peaceful to visit. The temple ground is huge, and there are spots to sit down and relax and soak in the temple atmosphere.

  • Very peaceful place, doesn't gather a lot of crowd (at least on a weekday). You can either watch it from the outside or pay the entrance fee and see it from the inside, you're not allowed to take photos inside the temples, but they are worth your time.

  • A temple with a distinctive and artistic architectural style. A very strategic place in the middle of town, and its place is very wide. Although it is a place of worship, the temple is open to the public for tourists to visit. At certain times, inside the temple there is a prayer service, and can be followed by visitors who are vacationing there. However, the inside of the temple is not allowed to be photographed because it is specifically for proper worship.
