It was the New Year and the whole place was alive with [eople, vendors and special displays. Of course all very well managed and people well behaved. We don't usually associate Osaka with great traditional architecture, this is a hidden gem.
More than a thousand year-old Shinto Shrine a short subway ride from the centre of Osaka. I was there during the annual coming-of-age ceremonies in Japan so it was quite crowded. There were a lot of families with small children. It is one of the...More
This place was one stop out of several on a cruise ship tour. I wasn't that impressed with the place, and I think that had much to do with having a dud for a tour guide. He led a group of us around the grounds,...More
There were many small children dressed in traditional clothes the day we visited the shrine. It was during the week that parents take children aged 3, 4 and 5 years of age (I think) to be blessed by priests. The small girls were like dolls....More
The shrine is direct access by the Hankai Tramway from Tennoji Station. The tram station is just directly outside the shrine.

Lovely scenery, calm when you immersed yourself with the nature of it. The bridges, walking paths and everything around makes you want to indulge in the serenity and brings out calmness in yourself. Lucky locals who can visit it so frequently.

Firstly, you can avoid the arched bridge by taking another flatter bridge about 100m to the left of the arched bridge, and then walking up a slope the the entrance. Inside the grounds much of it is a bit gravelly... More
Firstly, you can avoid the arched bridge by taking another flatter bridge about 100m to the left of the arched bridge, and then walking up a slope the the entrance. Inside the grounds much of it is a bit gravelly but I think it should be fine for a stroller. There are places with stone slaps which might be a little uneven but still fine with a stroller. There are not an tarmac surfaces like at many other temples and shrines as here most of the grounds are a hard surface with fine gravel over it, but firm enough for strollers.
This is one of my favourite shrines in the Osaka area so I am sure you will enjoy it.
