I Introduce Power Spot Namba Yasaka Shrine in Osaka Minami

I think that there are many people who have the image of a gourmet speaking of Osaka Minam, but there are also a number of power spots that benefit. Furthermore, there is a little away from the area of ​​Minami, but there is also the Imamiya ebisu shrine.

Among them, this time we introduce Namba Yasaka Shrine, which is famous for shishimai.

1.What kind of shrine is it?

First of all, there are no detailed documents. When the  diseasespread out in the vicinity of this area during Emperor Nintoku, it is considered as the beginning of the shrine that Ushido Tenno appeared. It has also been called “Namba-no-Miya” since then, and it was the  guardian deity of the Namba area.

In addition, it is said that it was famous as gosanjou Tenno from around the time of  enkyuu (1069-1073). This Gion Ushido Tenno is a deity god of Kyoto Yasaka Shrine.

That’s why it is Namba Yasaka Shrine. But there is one caveat here. The words “Saka” are different in Yasaka Shrine in Kyoto and Yasaka Shrine in Namba.

It became a gousya in 1972 . And the present main shrine is completed in 1974 .

At the same time, it was completed, and now it is a Shishimai that has become popular among domestic and foreign tourists. Size is height 12Meters depth 10Meters width 11Meters.

The eyes are light and the nose is a speaker.

I went to the night , it was closed already so I will take a photo next time.

Recently, it has been famous for calling victory with a big mouth, drinking evil . Visitors from all over the country come to pray for academic improvement and company development.

This shishimai head was built with the donation of 551 hourai, who is famous for “Butaman”. In addition, there was also the name of the store in the nearby Nanba-ebisubashi shopping district.

And this shrine is also characterized by its entrance in 3 directions.

You can see the shishimai head in front when you enter from the east side entrance.
