Though most of the original complex was destroyed in WWII (as is the case with much of Osaka's temples), this complex dates back to the 3rd century. The bridges highlight the area and it is a nice peaceful place to visit and enjoy. (Just a few blocks from the Sumiyoshi subway line)

Neighbourhood Profile
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
