For ages, the three enshrined Shinto gods at Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine have protected the nation, people on sea voyages, and patrons of waka poetry. This grand Sumiyoshi-zukuri style shrine serves as headquarters of some 2,000 Sumiyoshi shrines scattered throughout Japan. Because of the three gods' purposes, the shrine is a pilgrimage site for students of military arts, mariners, and poets. Observe how locals swarm the place, especially during New Year's Eve, to make wishes and pray for prosperity. Examine the shrine's symbol--the vermilion-colored Taiko-bashi bridge--and simply relax in the serene ambience.

Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine Reviews
2019年9月に参拝しました。難波から南海電車に乗り、住吉大社駅で下車。駅からすぐです。多くの海外からの旅行者が訪れていました。宮参りの家族も微笑ましかったです。御朱印もいただきました。 more »I visited in September 2019. Take the Nankai Train from Namba and get off at Sumiyoshi Taisha Station. It is a short distance from the station. Many foreign travelers visited. The family of the shrine visit was also smiling. I also got a red seal.
ด้านหน้าจะมีสะพานแดงที่เป็นสัญลักษณ์ทางเข้าของ ศาลเจ้า และเดินเข้ามาจะมีร้านขายเครื่องราง ด้านในมีต้นไม้ใหญ่พร้อมด้วย ศาลเจ้าให้ขอพร และมีลักษณะของสถาปัตยกรรมที่สวยงาม more »There is a red bridge at the entrance of the shrine, and the inside of the Amulet shop is a big tree. The shrine asks for blessings and looks of beautiful architecture.
I'm a little hesitant to write a review of Sumiyoshi Taisha. i feel like it's a hidden gem in that there are very little tourists that come through here. But, on the other hand I want to share what a great shrine this is. Despite how close this neighborhood is to the more bustling areas of Osaka, this area is calm and has a small town feel. Likewise, my visit to the shrine was peaceful and calm as there weren't very many people around. The grounds are also beautiful and impeccably manicured. I liked that you have the option of crossing that very steep arched bridge or stone bridges over the water way. The combination of water, trees, and light really make this place feel mystical.
The temple compound was large and pleasant. The temple grounds were kept very clean and the drum bridge especially was very attractive. The shrines inside were beautifully made and their design was unique compared to the other Japanese shrines. The garden was also well kept and neat. This place is a great place to visit since it takes you on a world of its own with a peaceful serene atmosphere in the middle of the city. I highly recommend visiting this location especially on festivals and the new year.
