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.

  • beautiful shrine, would reccomend, any sightseeing trip to osaka should include sumiyoshi taisho.

  • The shrine was a great visit that lasted about an hour. The gardens were nice and the shrine as a whole is very well maintained. I enjoyed seeing locals coming to pray at the various buildings.

  • Absolutely amazing shrine situated in a green area that seems to capsule it from the rest of the grey city. We visited the second day of hatsumode and it was crowded as we never seen before! Anyway it was stunning to see the rituals and the beautiful new year decorations, as well as the hundreds of small fair stalls. We had caramelized apples, clementines and strawberries, otonomiyaki, omusoba, tayaki, castella waffles... I recommend it a lot for having the first hatsumode experience!

  • Enjoyed the hatsumode in this shrine, where you can find lots of food stalls and game outlets while visiting the shrine.
