Hokoku Shrine - Review
This Shinto shrine located inside of Osaka Castle Park is dedicated to Toyotomi Hideyoshi, the man who unified Japan under a single rule some time before the` Edo period. The shrine, built on the orders of emperor Meiji, was moved several times, and only ended up in this location in the 1960s. Check out the bronze statue of the man. Pray for success in the main hall. Some even get married here.The garden outside is meant to represent Osaka and its surrounding landscape, including the sea.

Hokoku Shrine, Osaka Reviews
The shrine is part of Osaka castle, which is a good place to spend half a day strolling around and trying to imagine what life looked like once upon a time... It is a great place to visit with children. There are plenty of things to explore, places to rest and have food, small souvenir shops, as well as numerous green spaces to have a picnic
My first visit to a shrine in Japan. It's nearby the Osaka castle. There isn't much to see here. Was wanting to get Omamori for blessing as well as a form of souvenir, but the description of the Omamori are all in Japanese, which I can't read. If I don't know or understand what it is for, I won't be getting it.
Nice shrine on the way to Osaka Castle.
Entire area needs to be revilalized. Not much to see in this section.
Basically a small temple just right outside osaka castle entrance, if not rushing should take a look around
