The narrow street near Hozenji Temple. Why not strolling about the alleys and finding your favorite restaurant?

  • Gourmet Tour

Have you ever had trouble to find a place to eat after sightseeing?
Hozenji Yokocho is obviously the best place! In the midst of Minami (South) you will find narrow stone-paved alleys around Hozenji Temple.

The alleys are lined with small bars, kushikatu-ya skewered fried meats restaurants, sushi bars, cozy restaurants and cafes.

They originally started as food stalls for the visitors to the temple. Although the area was burned down by air raids in World War II, it soon revived as the entertainment place.

Loved by novelist Sakunosuke Oda, the Japanese sweet restaurant “Meoto Zenzai (Bean Broth for Two)” was, located in front of the moss-covered Fudo-myoo statue at Hozenji Temple, always serves Zenzai (sweetened red bean stew with rice cakes) in two bowls. Young couples come here to pray for their success in love and eat Zenzai together.
