This shrine used to be much more prominent, both in reputation and in size, than it is today. It used to be part of a complex of 12 buildings. But wars and Meiji era edicts dictating the separation of Shinto and Buddhism saw the shrine's other buildings demolished. Today the shrine is famous for its gigantic lion's head building. All good shrine have a myth. For this one, it is that of the shrine's deity, Susano-o-no-mikoto, killing the serpent Yamata-no-orochi. Anually, on the third Sunday of January, a tug of war competition is held at the shrine to commemorate the battle. People pray at the shrine for success in studies and business.

A different shrine with a fun summer matsuri. Good atmosphere for hatsumode. Worth a visit if you`re in the area.
The most unusual shrine in Japan. A shame it only open during night when there is some festival.
It was a cool place but a little out of the way.
Unique Shrine outlook. Good for photos if you go for a stroll/namba parks in the area.
Fun place to check out of your in the area. Great photo opps
