Walk in Namba Yasaka Shrine – Osaka, Japan

Namba Yasaka Shrine (難波八阪神社) is a Shinto shrine located in Naniwa Ward, Osaka City, Japan. It was formerly a village shrine.

The shrine appeared during the reign of Emperor Nintoku, when an epidemic broke out in the area. During the Enku era (1069-1073), the shrine was famous as a shrine dedicated to Ushitotenno.

After the Meiji Restoration (1868-1912), the temple was abolished due to the separation of Shinto and Buddhism, and became a township shrine in 1872.

The shrine was destroyed by fire in the first air raid on Osaka on March 13 and 14, 1945.

The current main shrine was completed in May 1974. Like the main hall, the shrine is famous for its lion’s head-shaped stage, which was completed in May 1974 and enshrines Susan Susan Susan’s spirit.
