This shrine is old, 13 centuries old. Established around the year 700, it did not become popular until 1000 years later. In 1703, it was the location of a double suicide - a merchant named Tokubei and a courtesan named Ohatsu. Their star crossed love was made the subject of a Bunraku play, which instantly made the shrine famous. Today, it's said to bestow blessings on the relationships of those who pray here. It is a tranquil location in the heart of Osaka.
A flea market is held at this location on the first and third Friday of the month.
- Tanimachi Line stop Higashi-Umeda Station.

Small but unique temple close to the lively Osaka/Umeda station area. A few shopping arcades with many options to eat nearby.
If you visit here during the mid Jan. or late July., you may join the event. Otherwise it's a lovely and quiet place in normal days.
Nice Temple, maybe a bit too touristy now. However I've really appreciate the English translation of the story.
An enjoyable temple to visit while in Osaka.
Good shrine flea market once a month. I think it's maybe 3rd Thursday of the month?. Double check ✔ that. I bought a few baby bonsai here and no complaints
