Ikukunitama Shrine - Review

The origin of this shrine is not clear. It is known that it burned down in 1580 in the Ishiyama battle, but was rebuilt later. At the time of its construction, the architecture was highly unusual. Now it even has concrete walls and a copper roof. Various festivals are celebrated at the shrine throughout the year. Chief among these is the Ikutama Summer Festival in July, a time of parades, lion dances and drumming. This is one of Osaka's three major festivals.

  • 這神社裡有位巫女的英文很好,我去的時間就是颱風燕子來襲的那天早上。那位巫女知道我是遊客,她用很流利的英文跟我說今天會有颱風將至,地鐵會停,叫我回酒店休息比較好。真的讓人感覺很美好。還有那位巫女也很漂亮哦。

  • Small quiet place. Good for a stroll before heading to kuromon market.

  • 去年の説明会に立ち寄った神社。因みにこの神社は織田作之助の名所巡りで調べていた時に知った。  大阪を代表する作家・織田作之助が幼い頃に遊んだ神社。因みに敷地内には上方落語の発祥地の碑や井原西鶴の銅像もある。  ある社近くに帽子を被り、トンビコートを羽織って手に煙草を織田作の銅像も置かれている。毎年彼の誕生日になると文楽や様々なジャンルの織田作に関するイベントが催される。  因みに谷崎潤一郎の『春琴抄』の冒頭に登場する。
