A beautiful little temple on one of the back streets close to Namba. The stage that is made inside a demons mouth is large and impressive. To the side of the scene there is a small temple. I don't think it's worth any larger detour because it's still rather small and it takes about 5-10 min to see everything interesting... More

Came here on a quiet weekday. There wasn't many people and we had the lion all to ourselves. Basically an interesting shrine which you shouldn't be spending more than a 15-min tour around this place, including prayers and all. It's not very interesting around the area so unless you have time to spare, just enjoy the pictures uploaded around the... More

This temple has character. I admire the temples in Kyoto because they all has the zen feeling. But this one is located in Osaka, in the middle of the city, and even there is no 'zen' feeling, it definitely has it's own charm. Recommended to visit if you pass by the are, because it's free anyway.

This temple is hidden within the neighbourhood, and its alright. When I was there, there was no one there, and the only thing worth seeing is the lion which is pretty cool. Otherwise thats literally it for this temple Go if you have some time to spare

This temple is located in Namba and basically is two buildings. The head and another building. Thats it. Not worth the 10 minute walk since its nothing to do other than to take on picture of the head.

We took a short walk specifically to find this place and we were glad we did. We spent around half an hour here having a look at the different features. It is certainly a 'wow' factor when you walk in. Enjoyed and would recommend.

1 minute walk, its beside the vitti lodge, great shrine.Namba Yasaka Shrine has long been worshipped as the tutelary deity of the Namba district. The shrine was once flourishing, possessing shichido garan (seven standard buildings of a Buddhist temple complex) and 12 attached temples.
