Tsuyunoten Shrine, Osaka

3.3
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.

  • It's in umeda town, so we went to visit him. I went out of the third building and it was right away. I've been here and there since then, but recently I've seen words like the sacred place of my lover. An unfamiliar flag... Yes, it was the flag of the age of the year by the Emperor's throne. Because it was said that there was a limited seal, I received it. By the way, the omikuji, too... And, I found the notation of Thai. There seem to be a lot of tourists.

  • A short walk from Umeda Station, you will find the open-air shrine (Ahatsu Tenjin). There are a few entrances, but you'll see them right away. Let's visit the shrine of the appearance with a very nice atmosphere.
