I came for the design. I stayed to make a wish. I can't really say much, as this is pretty much just a shrine. 100 Yen Sushi nearby though.

15 mins walk from Namba station to go to this shrine which is located in the residential area. I would say that its nothing much, just a special huge dragon head for you to take picture with. Its quite a quiet area so I guess...More

A beautiful little temple on one of the back streets close to Namba. The stage that is made inside a demons mouth is large and impressive. To the side of the scene there is a small temple. I don't think it's worth any larger detour...More

Came here on a quiet weekday. There wasn't many people and we had the lion all to ourselves. Basically an interesting shrine which you shouldn't be spending more than a 15-min tour around this place, including prayers and all. It's not very interesting around the...More

This temple has character. I admire the temples in Kyoto because they all has the zen feeling. But this one is located in Osaka, in the middle of the city, and even there is no 'zen' feeling, it definitely has it's own charm. Recommended to...More
