  • Awesome place! It's a gorgeous shrine about a seven minute walk from the station. It's definitely worth the time to check out, especially at the end of September. The shrine has a huge festival and the portable shrine is taken out for a walk around Osaka.
  • Wet beautiful shrine in Hyogo. It’s one of the most gorgeous shrines in Japan as well. This shrine is called Nishinomiya Ebisu, one of the shrines whose name includes “Ebisu”, that empowers business people and make their business more successful. That’s why this shrine is so crowed in January every year! You should definitely visit there. A lot of food carts on the street, a lot of energetic people and energetic atmosphere. You can try so many delicious food on the street and be totally full!! You won’t regret! Just come visit and experience real Japanese culture!!
