Hozenji Yokocho street refers to the two narrow lanes which run from east to west and became famous in Sakunosuke Oda’s novel, Meoto Zenzai. There is Hozenji Temple, which is a temple of Jodo shu, with the Mizukake Fudo statue covered with moss. Stone pavements that are wet with sprinkled water create a distinctive atmosphere.
