“Refreshing and quaint shopping street.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The shopping street is more like a district. It comprises of a few similar covered streets one after another. The shops' variety is wide ranged and you don't have similar shops cluster together. You can have a boutique next to a eatery following by a supermarket etc. The prices are competitive and affordable and some sales are at bargain prices. One can easily spend at least 2 hours there. One good starting point is from the beautiful Osu Kannon Temple. The shopping street begins from the right side of the temple if you're standing facing it. And the temple is only 2 minute walk from the Osu Kannon Station.

“Popular shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

This "street" is actually a combination of several streets within an area of about three blocks of buildings. Street merchandise mostly but you do find things you don't get in department stores.

“Temple and Shopping Complex”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

A quiet peaceful temple when we went towards the end of a weekday in Nagoya. I didn’t have to pay to see it (which was nice) and the construction and shrine were beautiful. There are some other happening events but I came late in the day during the middle of the week so I probably didn’t experience as much as I could have.

It’s immediately adjacent to a little shopping mall; within that mall there is a gift store, located to the right side, that had in my opinion the best selection of high quality/low price items of all the places we visited. The owner spoke English well and was very helpful when I asked for specific items. The mall itself was pleasant as well. Wish I could recall the name…my wife and I bought a fair number of gifts from here. Worth a look.

“Osu Kannon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

Wow......how many shops and eateries can you have in one place? Osu Kannon is ram-jammed with establishments selling just about everything you could imagine. Catch the subway train to Osu Kannon station and allow around 3-4 hours to shop, people watch and dine. Afterwards catch a train and take in some more of Nagoya's many attractions.

“Really more fun to people watch than actually buy stuff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This is a fun area to just have a stroll and people watch.....depending on who you are. I don't personally find Japanese fashions all that compelling to purchase, but it is fun to see what other people are up to.
