This Shinto shrine in the south of Osaka City was founded in the 3rd century. It is considered the headquarters for thousands of Sumiyoshi shrines all over the country that are dedicated to the gods who protect fishermen and sea travelers. In ancient times this shrine stood just by the sea, and today's surrounding areas have been gradually reclaimed for many centuries.

During New Year’s days, Sumiyoshi Taisha is one of the most visited shrines in Japan. The architecture has an originally Japanese style and the god-trees are very fascinating. The precincts are a perfect mix of nature and man-made beauty. It is worth a 10-minute train ride from Namba.

Very big and with many interesting locations. You can also feel a chilling atmosphere in here. The best are some old tradional Japanese wood art that you can find, very interesting. It worths a look.

Beautiful shrine with unique bridge. Easy access (very close to the train station). It would be nice if there is a sign or explanation in English. This shrine Getting popular among the tourists. Nothing much around the area.

Beautiful view and not too crowding if you pick up the suitable day to come, quite a quiet place. The area is big and interesting temples. There’s railways in front of the gate, makes the place become more naturally.
