Tsuyunoten Shrine, Osaka
(3.6/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
A site of worship and tragedy, Tsuyunoten Shrine offers a welcome respite from the busy city streets. Surrounded by modern buildings, the site has been in use since at least the sixth century, and is believed to have the power to give success in business, provide traffic safety, and help stabilize relationships, among other things. The shrine was also the site of a shocking double suicide in 1703. The doomed lovers' tale was made famous with a puppet play written by Monzaemon Chikamatsu, and you can now view a memorial tower dedicated to them, which is popular with couples. It's also worth looking out for a flea market held here every first and third Friday of the month.

  • I went there because I was attracted by the picture in my travel book. I think that it will be fun to go there and make a wish. However, it's hard to find because it's in the middle of two old buildin...  more »
  • Sonezaki ohatsu Tenjin Street shrine in the shopping street. If morning walk, I had happened to be found. Know the place you thought something God of prosperity from the Osaka Ekimae shotengai, later on, became the puppet "love suicides at Sonezaki" model.

  • I stopped by while you're drinking with close friends in Osaka and Tenjin. The love suicides at Sonezaki Chikamatsu Monzaemon's stage. Was a slow time with illuminated light, strange feeling. I'm called an open-air shrine.

  • A relatively small shrine in the middle of the city. Always nice to see how well maintained they are in Japan. If you go to Kyoto before, this shrine would be pretty underwhelming. However, there is the convenience factor if you just feel like visiting a shrine.
  • A cute little shrine dedicated to love and romance. Three main buildings with many cherry blossoms planted around the structures - perfect for a spring visit. A breathe of fresh air in a crowded city. Bonus: the fortunes dispensed for 100yen include English descriptions!
  • Small but famous, a cow sculpture for success in studies
  • A place where You can find silent just beetwen high building
  • It's so cool!
