Sukunahikona Shrine Reviews
薬の街、道修町らしく日本の薬祖神・少彦名命を祀った神社です｡中国の薬祖神の神農とあわせて祀られています。 more »It is a shrine dedicated to the yakusojin of Japan, The Nahiko Meilife, which seems to be a town of medicine, Doshu-cho. It is enshrined in conjunction with the god farming of the Medicine God in China.
地下鉄駅から多少歩いたビルの谷間にひっそりと佇むこじんまりとした神社さん。猛暑の中でお参りしましたが、神社の大きな大木の周りだけ涼しい風が吹きとても気持ちの良い場所でした。期間限定のカラフルな御朱印を頂けます。初穂料は2枚別柄セットで1000円。色とりどりの腕輪守りやお守りも販売されていましたので女性におすすめかもしれません。 more »A small shrine stands quietly in the valley of the building which walked a little from the subway station. I prayed in the intense heat, but only around the big tree of the shrine was blowing a cool breeze, and it was a very pleasant place. You can get a colorful red seal for a limited time. The first fee is a set of different patterns. Because colorful bangles and amulets were also sold, it might be recommended for women.
Small shrine in between buildings. But many prayers visit here for prosper in business or health. A model of Tiger is popular one as good luck charm. You should receive one. You might be able to take a lucky effect too.
Unique experience: in late November, this shrine held a street food and games festival, to raise money for the shrine as far as I could tell. I hope it is an annual thing, and if it is, you should go. All the izakaya and street food favorites - takoyaki, okonomiyaki, taiyaki, chestnuts, sweet potatoes - were set up on stalls in the street for late night strolling and eating. Lots of fun and a semi-magical introduction to Osaka. This review is mostly to say thank you to the shrine caretakers for that experience in the hope that they will do it again so others can see it.
