Alongside Asakusa, one of Japan's three biggest Kannon.
Osu Kannon is where Buddhist asceticism is practiced in the worship of the bodhisattva <i>Avalokiteśvara</i> or <i>"kannon"</i> in Japanese. It is one of three temples dedicated to the kannon in Japan. Owing to the presence of the Kannon, Osu has historically been a flourishing Monzen-cho. When military commander, Ieyasu Tokugawa of one of Three Heroes of the Waring-States Period developed the town of Nagoya he relocated the temple from its previous location to avoid repeated flooding. Many yearly events are held here including a <i>Setsubun</i> festival.
