About this sight

Officially the oldest Buddhist temple in Japan, founded by Prince Shotoku, Shitenno-ji Temple was built in 539​. Located in central Osaka, about 15-minutes walk from Tennoji Station, visitors can also opt for a ride along the Hankai Tramway, Osaka's only streetcar, towards the temple. The Rokujido Temple annex is open until 18:00.
