Create an itinerary including Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine
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.

  • Very big and with many interesting locations. You can also feel a chilling atmosphere in here. The best are some old tradional Japanese wood art that you can find, very interesting. It worths a look.
  • Beautiful shrine with unique bridge. Easy access (very close to the train station). It would be nice if there is a sign or explanation in English. This shrine Getting popular among the tourists. Nothing much around the area.
