FYeahJapan: Shitennoji Temple

Shitenoji Temple (Osaka, Japan)

After spending way too much time in shopping in Osaka we decided to start our day off with something cultural BUT the demon gods had other plans for us as the main attraction of Shitennoji Temple, the pagoda was covered in scaffolding and instead we walked into the most amazing temple flea market ever... so much for saving monies!

Despite the pagoda being closed off the inner grounds of the temple were open and free to explore and very beautiful, there were lots of separate buildings to see and the ponds in the grounds were inhabited by lot's of little turtles, so cute! And of course the market was pretty amazing to there were lot's of stalls there selling all different items from vintage furniture to food to kimonos to toys to pickles, I bought some pretty delicious mochi there and some cute toys for just 100 yen each so definitely a day well spent!
