About Tsuyunoten Shrine, Osaka

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.

Tsuyunoten Shrine, Osaka Reviews

  • 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

  • Came here on Christmas night alone. lot's of lovers going in. Let's say it's a cool shrine in the middle of city.

  • A relatively small shrine in the middle of the city. Always nice to see how well maintained they are in Japan. If you go to Kyoto before, this shrine would be pretty underwhelming. However, there is the convenience factor if you just feel like visiting a shrine.

  • A cute little shrine dedicated to love and romance. Three main buildings with many cherry blossoms planted around the structures - perfect for a spring visit. A breathe of fresh air in a crowded city. Bonus: the fortunes dispensed for 100yen include English descriptions!

  • Small but good to visit if you're in the area
