Tsuyunoten Shrine, Osaka

Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
3.5/5 based on 130+ 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.

  • At that stage of the love suicides at Sonezaki is a shrine famous for matchmaking. In the shopping district was dissolved nonchalantly. Beautiful prayer for the EMA was unique.

  • Strangely in the precincts of the shrine, living with food and beverage outlets. Chikamatsu Monzaemon "love suicides at Sonezaki" by that stage. This street is facing a lot of B-class gourmet dining in Osaka.

  • 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!
