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.

  • The Jida club can be said to be a very small tourist spot because of the need to sit on a more distant iron or on the mainland of the car. But you can see this shrine when you get off the train. If you have good luck, you can also see the wedding ceremony of the Japanese new. The arched red bridge over the river is one of the most distinctive buildings in the shrine.

  • Beautiful place with traditional shrines. Great place for foreigners too, u can have your fortune and request for an English version. The shrines are georgous, worth visiting.
  • 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.
  • one of the most important japanese shrine. it is the first class shrine of Settsu-koku, old name of Osaka. also, is the head shrine about sea and sailing in japan, which has dozens of sister shrine with names prefixed Sumiyoshi all over Japan. there are a lot of beautiful and traditional japanese style architectures, such as the main shrine, bridge, and Torii gates. the most recommended sightseeing spot in Osaka.
  • If you are having a city tour within Osaka City, you better drop your feet into this enormous shrine. Accessible, free, INSTAGRAMable spots are everywhere esp the bridge that makes this place extra special.
  • An amazing germ in Osaka. It’s peaceful and quiet. Serenity is the word to describe my experience there!! Loved it
