  • Small shrine in between buildings. But many prayers visit here for prosper in business or health. A model of Tiger is popular one as good luck charm. You should receive one. You might be able to take a lucky effect too.
  • Unique experience: in late November, this shrine held a street food and games festival, to raise money for the shrine as far as I could tell. I hope it is an annual thing, and if it is, you should go. All the izakaya and street food favorites - takoyaki, okonomiyaki, taiyaki, chestnuts, sweet potatoes - were set up on stalls in the street for late night strolling and eating. Lots of fun and a semi-magical introduction to Osaka. This review is mostly to say thank you to the shrine caretakers for that experience in the hope that they will do it again so others can see it.
