Osaka, Japan

Search for treasure temples and shrines of Osaka

Just like its Kansai neighbors of Nara and Kyoto, Osaka is a significant city of culture and traditions in Japan with a sheer number of Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines, well worth visiting. These centuries-old spiritual structures are located in the backstreets and oldest areas of the city which have changed little over the years, making for perfect walking tours and cultural trips. The star attraction in the city is Shitennoji Temple, Japan’s oldest official temple established in 593 by Prince Shotoku who endeavored to establish the Buddhist religion in Japan. The temple’s famous Gokuraku-jodo Garden is also one of the best places to see cherry blossoms in Osaka. Another spot you should not miss is Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine, an ancient Shinto shrine popular for its uniquely Japanese architectural design called sumiyoshi-zukuri, and Hattatsu Mairi (praying for business prosperity). Basking in the beauty of these sites showcases not only the old charms of Osaka but also the rich Japanese culture now and then.
