Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine - Review
The Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine is one of Japan's oldest shrines. It was founded in the 3rd century. This was before the introduction of Buddhism to Japan and hence the shrine has a unique style of architecture known as Sumiyoshi-zukuri. Trivia- The temple enshrines three gods that have long been worshiped for protecting the nation, for protecting sea voyages and for promoting waka (31-syllable) poetry. Therefore, this shrine is a place of pilgrimage for sea travellers, military students and waka poets.

Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine, Osaka Reviews
This shrine was a pleasant surprise. I was amazed by its beauty, and I was lucky to visit this place without so many people around. The view of this place is just beautiful. Easy access from the train station (literally a 30-second walk). I would highly recommend this shrine if you're in Osaka.
one of the most important japanese shrine. it is the first class shrine of Settsu-koku, old name of Osaka. also, is the head shrine about sea and sailing in japan, which has dozens of sister shrine with names prefixed Sumiyoshi all over Japan. there are a lot of beautiful and traditional japanese style architectures, such as the main shrine, bridge, and Torii gates. the most recommended sightseeing spot in Osaka.
If you are having a city tour within Osaka City, you better drop your feet into this enormous shrine. Accessible, free, INSTAGRAMable spots are everywhere esp the bridge that makes this place extra special.
Osaka's Sumiyoshi Taisha (住吉大社, "Sumiyoshi Grand Shrine") is one of Japan's oldest shrines. Founded in the 3rd century before the introduction of Buddhism, it displays a unique style of shrine architecture, called Sumiyoshi-zukuri, that is free of influence from the Asian mainland. Only two other shrine architecture styles are also considered purely Japanese: Shinmei-zukuri as seen at the Ise Shrines and Taisha-zukuri as seen at Izumo Taisha.
An amazing germ in Osaka. It’s peaceful and quiet. Serenity is the word to describe my experience there!! Loved it
