About Horikawa Ebisu Shrine, Osaka
Thought the original structure was built in the 6th century, and moved to this location in the 13th, the bombings of WWII completely destroyed the temple. The building you see here today was completed in 1963. From January 9th to 11th, the Toka Ebisu festival is celebrated here in worship of the kami of commerce, Ebisu. They bring Tai (a kind of bamboo branch), Koban (a Japanese gold coin), and a bag of rice. There is a smaller shrine inside the complex, the Danjiri-Inari. It's said that if your prayers are answered, the shrine will chime with music.
