Kitamuki Jizoson

Traditionally, it has been said that they live in the same place as the people and are there to fulfill their wishes.

Tsuyu no Tenjinja (Commonly Known as Ohatsu Tenjin)

Approximately 8 minutes walk from Hankyu Osaka-umeda Station. Once you pass the shopping street lined with restaurants, you will arrive at Tsuyu no Tenjinja. Amid towering buildings, it truly is an urban oasis.
Commonly known as Ohatsu Tenjin, the shrine is named after the heroine in Chikamatsu Monzaemon’s puppet play The Love Suicides at Sonezaki, which is based on a historical double suicide that took place in the shrine precincts in 1703.

This tragic love story led to Ohatsu Tenjin becoming known as a power spot for matchmaking. There are many prayers for success in love written on the heart-shaped ema (special wooden plaques). You might want to stop by to pray for success in your love life while on vacation.
