Hozenji Yokocho

OPEN HOURSDifferent by each shop

This narrow, stone-paved lane next to Dotombori Street feels like the Osaka of olden days―of hundreds of years ago. Cozy and quaint, lined on both sides with small food shops and cafes, it earned instant fame with Sakunosuke Oda's novel "Meoto Zenzai" (Sweet Bean Broth for Two). It is also famous for its moss-covered Fudo-myo statue, known as Mizukake Fudo. You will find a signboard with calligraphy written by the third Harudani Katsura on the east gate, and by Kambi Fujiyama on the west gate. The beautiful stone-paved pathways here, and the moss-covered Buddhist figure, represent the cultured aspects of Osaka.
