Nanbayasaka Shrine - Review

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.

Nanbayasaka Shrine, Osaka Reviews

  • We had our wedding here in May. It’s a beautiful neighbourhood shrine with a spectacular lion head stage. There are often festivals here during Japanese traditional holidays which are always fun and family friendly.

  • Did not get to see the shrine because we went around 8pm. May be next time.

  • Clean and very serene. Tucked in in a very nice neighborhood. A nice side tour for us.

  • The weirdest and most amazing shrine I have visited in Osaka. It is definitely an obligatory spot for taking pictures and enjoying the experience of visiting a small/local shrine. Despite its repercussion it's not crowded, but this may change in a while because it's getting more and more media echo.

  • A very unusual shrine. From the main gate, the huge lion head building is clearly visible. Nice little photo op in a rather drab area. Unfortunately when I visited today, there were awnings set up and people were clearing the grounds - it looked like they had a little festival recently.
