Easy Access
Free Admission

Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine is a major Shinto shrine in southern Osaka. It is one of the oldest shrines in the country, dating back to the third century. It is well-known for its distinct architectural style which is said not to have been influenced by any other Asian cultures from the continent, unlike Buddhist temples and other Shinto shrines that were built in later centuries. Sumiyoshi shrines throughout Japan protect travelers, sailors, and fishermen, and Osaka Sumiyoshi Taisha is the most significant of them. It draws huge crowds for hatsumode, the first shrine visits of the new year in January.
