I saw it from a Hankai Tram and resolved to return. This was a good choice. I came on a rainy day, getting oiff the tram right at the gate. There were few people were about and I wandered through the various shrines. There were so many beautiful buildings and trees. Entry is free.

I decided on coming here while my wife went to a different area for shopping. I took the subway to Namba Station and transferred to the JR Train to the Shrine so it was very easy to get there from the Osaka Train Station area. About 2 blocks from the Sumiyoshi Train stop to the Shrine and Arched Bridge.
I was also lucky to see a traditional Japanese wedding while there. If you go be sure to walk around the grounds as there are a number of other shrines, stone lantern and buildings worth seeing. Of cource walk over the arched bridge as well.

Easy to access by subway (same name), you arrive at a large garden that contains a big shrine and a temple. This Shinto shrine greets you with a big Torri gate and stone lions guarding the entrance. Long rows of stone lanterns are escorting you along the garden. There is a small river that crosses the garden with two beautiful bridges. One wooden-red bridge and one made of stone.

The temple is gorgeous. I was lucky enough to see a Japanese traditional wedding happening while I was there. So peaceful and beautiful. There is a beautiful garden called Sumiyoshi park is opposite the temple ( if you turn left from the station to get to the temple, then head opposite direction). There were a lot of locals doing their early sakura viewing. There is also quaint local market nearby I think is called Kohama.
