I wanted to stop off there in the morning before my flight from Kansai in the evening. Is there anywhere to store a small suitcase of luggage? Grasping for straws, but you never know! Thank you.
What type of luggage do you have? I don't remember there specifically being any lockers in the facility but there may be some in the Sumiyoshi Taisha station that is within walking distance!
If you have a backpack you will probably be alright, the bridge is quite steep so heavy suitcases may provide difficult. Not to fear though, if you're entering the shrine from the Sumiyoshi Taisha station side, when you're facing the bridge there is a more gradual walkway into the shrine on your right hand side. (this is actually a better place for a picture anyways! :))
I would like to think some (if not all) of the walking surface inside of the walls of the shrine are gravel with some side walks. Definitely try to stop by before you go though, beautiful location!
Hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan! Feel free to message us if you have other questions or check out our blog @ pagesoftravel. wordpress. com for more info!
