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.
