Tsuyunoten Shrine, Osaka

3.6
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.

  • Good shrine flea market once a month. I think it's maybe 3rd Thursday of the month?. Double check ✔ that. I bought a few baby bonsai here and no complaints
  • Came here on Christmas night alone. lot's of lovers going in. Let's say it's a cool shrine in the middle of city.
  • 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 flea market and the main shrine guarding osaka
  • 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!

Where to stay in Osaka

The majority of Osaka's moderate and expensive accommodations concentrate in the districts of Umeda, Kyobashi, Namba, and Shin-Osaka. Base your stay in or near Minami neighborhood for proximity to a wide selection of shopping and dining options. For quick access to long-distance transportation to other cities and areas, look for hotels in Kita district. Many backpackers prefer the budget options in the Tennoji area, where the quality of rooms and prices vary wildly--call or check websites of specific establishments before you make reservations.
