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 shrine is surrounded by a small park, which has many great corners and highlights. In the Middle, or if you look at the water, you can see for example the high bridge Koi and turtles. The shrine is very well with the railway and an absolute recommendation in Osaka to reach!
大阪の定番的は初詣スポットといえば、住吉大社があげられるでしょう。正月三が日は人が歩くのが大変なくらい初詣客でにぎわいます。 more »Will be given to the Sumiyoshi Taisha hatsumode spots and speaking of standard, New people walk very much crowded with new year's day.
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.
