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

  • The temple compound was large and pleasant. The temple grounds were kept very clean and the drum bridge especially was very attractive. The shrines inside were beautifully made and their design was unique compared to the other Japanese shrines. The garden was also well kept and neat. This place is a great place to visit since it takes you on a world of its own with a peaceful serene atmosphere in the middle of the city. I highly recommend visiting this location especially on festivals and the new year.

  • Really beautiful place. It's even better that is far from tourist sites. Come here later in the evening before it closes, around 4pm and stay behind till it's close. Enjoy the serenity and tranquility of the shrine alone or at least not crowded. Can take awesome shots of the place and the famous bridge. Take your time to stroll through the compound

  • humbling experience to see this place and the Japanese practice their religion. 10/10 recommend visiting. Not crowded too.

  • This is a nice and peaceful place and we enjoyed it. Just a heads-up for those who are travelling on a one or two day Osaka travel pass cause this place is outside the Osaka city area and your cards can't be used.

  • Beautiful place with traditional shrines. Great place for foreigners too, u can have your fortune and request for an English version. The shrines are georgous, worth visiting.
