Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine, Osaka

4.4
For ages, the three enshrined Shinto gods at Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine have protected the nation, people on sea voyages, and patrons of waka poetry. This grand Sumiyoshi-zukuri style shrine serves as headquarters of some 2,000 Sumiyoshi shrines scattered throughout Japan. Because of the three gods' purposes, the shrine is a pilgrimage site for students of military arts, mariners, and poets. Observe how locals swarm the place, especially during New Year's Eve, to make wishes and pray for prosperity. Examine the shrine's symbol--the vermilion-colored Taiko-bashi bridge--and simply relax in the serene ambience.

  • certainly the bridge is beautiful, I visit this temple on a Sunday with a wedding in there... Unfortunately after 10 days of visit and a countless number of temple, I saw no difference apart from the bridge. Certainly a little hotel so little tourist

  • Are closing in 5:00 PM can visit the 24-hour shrine because we wanted and was not allowed on the grounds. Reluctantly I worship at the next morning. Please note.

  • This shrine was a pleasant surprise. I was amazed by its beauty, and I was lucky to visit this place without so many people around. The view of this place is just beautiful. Easy access from the train station (literally a 30-second walk). I would highly recommend this shrine if you're in Osaka.
  • An amazing germ in Osaka. It’s peaceful and quiet. Serenity is the word to describe my experience there!! Loved it
  • Nice temple and easily accessible by train. Not a bad place to spend a few hours.
  • beautiful shrine, would reccomend, any sightseeing trip to osaka should include sumiyoshi taisho.
  • The shrine was a great visit that lasted about an hour. The gardens were nice and the shrine as a whole is very well maintained. I enjoyed seeing locals coming to pray at the various buildings.
