Tips from the community

The Shitenno-ji Temple is a fantastic piece of history hidden at the heart of modern day Osaka. Built in 593 (yes, you read that right), this temple aided in strengthening Buddhism in Japan during its early days. Locals claim that it has never been closed, remaining open every day for 1500 years. If you’re in the area (or not), this is one of the best things to do in Osaka.
