Katsuoji Temple, situated north of Osaka City and nestled in the idyllic nature of Minoo, is famous for its lucky reputation. For centuries, emperors and shoguns prayed at this temple for victory in their endeavors. Today, visitors still flock to the sacred grounds to pray for victor’s luck with work, academics, business, sports, and more. Katsuoji’s lucky atmosphere is complemented by an infinite amount of daruma dolls strewn across the complex, which are Japanese symbols of good luck.
