Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine4.2
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.

It’s easy to reach from Namba station! Just take the Nankai Line and get off at “SumiyoshiHigashi” . From here, you can easily arrive to the shrine, but it is actually the rear entrance.
It is very big and can be challenging to understand what to see but it is very nice and totally worth the visit, especially for the big red bridge. The famous power stone is actually closed due to coronavirus
