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.

  • Is a Shinto shrine located in the bars of the Osaka Kita. It is famous as the shrine of Chikamatsu Monzaemon Sonezaki. Known as the "first" Tenjin is in the name of its main character. Beautiful prayer for the EMA, EMA of marriage more dedication, such as Shrine since quite a lot of women worshippers.

  • One of the places like open-air shrine known as ohatsu Tenjin Osaka many have favorite places. The time and just look at the want to be I wonder why. Perhaps because of memories of when I first came to Osaka are clogged. Oden shop at that time was in the flavor are written and passed. Dying Oden broth in Kanto is absolutely unique and nostalgic.

  • Outdoor hot spring God is a shrine adjacent to the Osaka Sonezaki shopping street. Visited in February, with a charm. Provision and amulet p.m. so caution is required. Because this year is the year of the dog, in front of the shrine was placed in case dog sculpture.

  • 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 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 good to visit if you're in the area
