This is one of the larger temples in Nagoya, so it's worth some time to spend. The building itself, while big, isn't all that impressive since it is a replica rebuilt in the 20th century after the first was destroyed. The real gems of this temple are the flea markets held there and the wooden statue of Kannon, the goddess of mercy, which was carved by Kobo Daishi, an instrumental figure in Japanese Buddhism.

名古屋を旅行中、ふらっと街中を歩いていると、大須観音に辿り着きました。本堂は、趣があり、空いていたので、ゆっくりとお参りをすることができました。家族と一緒に来ましたので、家内安全と家族の健康を願いました。そして、境内の中にある、鐘楼堂は、とても大きな歴史を感じさせられる鐘で、間近に見ることができ、良かったです。
