About Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine, Osaka

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 - Write a Review

  • 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.

  • The temple has an old history. It is an interesting place to visit. Finding the stone 五大力 is a special experience.

  • It could maybe because it has been the first temple that I visited since I came to Japan, but you have to visit this beautiful shrine. It is one of the greatest shrines in Japan, immersed in nature: you just have to enter the shrine to forget about the city's noise.

  • Beautiful place. You can get blessings in the shrine and buy amulets here.

  • The shrine is quite beautiful, the best part is the bridge over the river to get to the shrine.
