Owner description: Built prior to the influx of Buddhist architecture, this shrine - one of the oldest in Japan - exemplifies a purely Japanese style design.

It's a beautiful shrine, one of the oldest in Japan and unique in architecture as compared to most other shrines. Take a stroll around and enjoy the tranquil surroundings. There were a few shops before the entrance though I'm not sure if they're a seasonal thing. We bought omamori as we always do when we visit shrines and temples.

This is a pretty shrine, but it's hard to get to. You have to take a street car to get there and it's pretty much in the middle of nowhere. There isn't much to do other than look at the bridge, unless you want to enter the shrine. The shrine itself is small and was closed when I went to visit.

This shrine is well worth a visit. It is the nicest shrine in Osaka and very beautiful. It has both a unique bridge and some unique architecture.It is a peaceful garden even if there always is a lot of visitors. The Shrine is easily accessible with the Hankai tram line from Osaka, and the stop is just in front of the shrine.

This is a must see attraction when visiting Osaka. The bridge makes for great photos, and the area around the shrine is very peaceful to walk around. This place is not very crowded too, which is great! The shrine area is free to enter.

This shrine was a pleasant surprise. I was amazed by its beauty, and I was lucky to visit this place without so many people around. The view of this place is just beautiful. Easy access from the train station (literally a 30-second walk). I would highly recommend this shrine if you're in Osaka.
