Osaka Tenmangu Shrine hosts Osaka's biggest festival Tenjin Matsuri. Osaka Tenmangu Shrine was originally built in 949.
Osaka Tenmangu Shrine is the most famous of all the many Tenjin/Tenmangu shrines throughout Japan. Originally built in 949, Osaka Tenmangu Shrine was destroyed by fire several times and the current shrine was built in 1845. It enshrines Michizane Sugawara who is a famous scholar and warrior as the principal deity.

It is one of the three greatest festivals of Japan and the world's greatest boat festival. During the festival, traditional Japanese performing arts such as kagura music and bunraku puppets performances are performed in all parts of the city.

地下鉄南森町から歩いて数分のところにあります。駅周辺はビルなどでごちゃごちゃしていますが境内は落ち着いた雰囲気でよかったです。有名な神社ですが思っていたより大きくなかったです。特別な日ではなかったのですがお参りに来ている人が多かったです。

地下鉄谷町線か堺筋線南森町駅から歩いて五分くらいのところにあります。造幣局の通り抜けの時に参拝しました。鳥居で記念撮影している人も多かったです。木造の大きな拝殿が印象的でした。雨が降りそうな天気にもかかわらず多くの人が参拝していました。

正月や天神祭や他のイベントのときには、境内に入りきれないほどの人がどっと押し寄せるところですが、普段は地元の人が参拝に来る程度で、比較的静かな場所です。正月は行列しないと入れないくらいにぎわいますが、大晦日夕方から行われる『大祓式』は比較的人が少なく、身を清める行事を厳かにとり行ってくれます。
