The temple of winner’s luck – Katsuo-ji Temple (勝運の寺 勝尾寺)

Event

A Koyasan Shingon Buddhist temple located in Minoh City, Osaka Prefecture famous as the “temple of winner’s luck” and the “temple of the Winning Daruma (tumbling doll).” In the Kansai region, the temple is also a renowned destination for viewing late blooming cherry blossoms. In spring, a variety of cherry trees bloom on the temple’s grounds, starting with Kanhi-zakura cherries in March, as well as Yoshino cherries, hill cherries, and Higan cherries. The weeping cherry tree just past the Main Gate is particularly stunning, and during the blooming period it delights the eyes of a great many visitors to the temple with its pale pink blossoms. A Cherry Blossom Festival is also held at its ground around the time the cherry trees are in full bloom. Temple grounds are open from 8:00 to 17:00 (until 17:30 Saturdays, 18:00 Sundays and holidays). Entry is 400 yen for adults, 300 yen for elementary and junior high school students. Toilets and paid parking available.

          While Osaka prefecture is the country's second smallest prefecture, its capital, Osaka City, is the country's third-largest and arguably one of the most popular in the Kansai region thanks to its vibrant nightlife, the Osaka people's openness, and its much-loved cuisine, which has earned it the nickname "the nation's kitchen."
