Osaka tenmangu shrine Reviews
創建は949年 社殿は何度も焼失している。 現在の社殿は1843年 大阪空襲では焼失間逃れた。 天神祭りは京都祇園祭や神田祭と併せて 日本三大祭と言われているらしいです。 菅原道真公を主祭神にされてます。 more »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.
天神橋筋商店街に行く前に立ち寄りました。9時過ぎに行きましたが、観光客数人と七五三のお参りの写真を撮っている方がいました。200円でおみくじが引けて、私は小吉で文字が黒でしたが、連れが大吉で文字が金色で裏がキラキラしてて、綺麗でした。珍しいので、機会があればおみくじを引いてみると良いと思います more »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.
