Tsuyunoten Shrine, Osaka
(3.5/5 based on 150+ 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.

From commonly known as first official name is famous as the location of the open-air shrine, Chikamatsu Monzaemon Sonezaki Shinju. Around in the downtown area of Sonezaki shinchi businessmen and tourists drinking and a couple come in worship and humungous. Three might gate and into the environment from all sides. Admission is free from Osaka Station, Umeda station, 10 minutes ' walk away.

  • The impression here the charm toy treat feel uncomfortable and dirty shopping destination in the sanctity of the shrine and tenuous. Easy to reach from the train station it is good. Arrived at 8:30 in the morning, but since this morning young women, salaried workers and in addition to many people. We checked we nokyo-Sho, but feel bad.

  • 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!
