  • Beautiful and peaceful! It is a fairly small shrine and active place of worship. You can see beautiful tori gates. It is not a popular tourist spot, so you can take your time and enjoy slowly.
  • A nice area in osaka for shrine and some street shopping. This area is still not overrun by tourists as most tourists goes to area such as Dotonbori, Osaka station. The shopping street here is pretty decent for a stroll during the weekdays, but it get really busy during the weekend.
