Absolutely lovely temple, shrines and gardens, and the now famous bridge. Everything about this place is wonderful.
About 35 min from Shin Osaka Station along the Nankai Line, getting off at Sumiyoshitaisha Station. Yep it's a mouthful, but worth the effort. There's a lovely old covered shopping arcade adjacent the station where some great lunch items can be bought and eaten in the park on the opposite side to the shrine too. But back to the main course!
Large stone "lantern like" structures adorn the perimeter, and indeed to interior also. The main Temple has a large courtyard, which opens out into various paths to other shrines. At thr front entrance thoufg, is that bright red wooden bridge, arching over a stream of carp. Ducks and turtles also inhabit these waters.
Stroll around and absorb the Zen......you'll feel refreshed and maybe even enlightened!
We were there on 20th April and witnessed a Shinto Wedding....absolutely lovely.
