  • The shrine was built in 949 and has been burned down many times. The present shrine was destroyed during the Osaka air raid in 1843. Tenjin Matsuri is said to be one of Japan's three major festivals in conjunction with the Kyoto Gion Festival and Kanda Festival. Michizane Sugawara is made the lord of the festival.

  • We stopped by before going to Tenjinbashi-suji Shopping Street. I went there after 9 o'clock, but there were some tourists and a person taking pictures of Shichigosan's visit. I drew a fortune for 200 yen, and I was kokichi and the letters were black, but the characters were golden and the back was sparkling, and it was beautiful. Because it is rare, I think that it is good to draw a fortune if there is a chance.

  • Beautiful and peaceful! It is a fairly small shrine and active place of worship. You can see beautiful tori gates. It is not a popular tourist spot, so you can take your time and enjoy slowly.
  • A nice area in osaka for shrine and some street shopping. This area is still not overrun by tourists as most tourists goes to area such as Dotonbori, Osaka station. The shopping street here is pretty decent for a stroll during the weekdays, but it get really busy during the weekend.
