It was close to where I stayed in Namba area, maybe about 15 min walk from Namba station. It was good to just drop in to see the lion shrine. If you are around the area, why not?

Located in the residential area of Namba. This small shrine is easy to find. Not far from Namba station. It was quiet and not many tourist around. A very different design to a normal shrine in Japan. Worth a visit if you are in Namba.

This temple is like no other, as you can see by the photo. It's worth a quick stop by , just to experience it's unique facade.

It is worth stopping in here to see the lion, but once you’ve seen it then move on. Impressive, then move on.

I visited many shrines while I was in Japan and this was the best and my favourite. A short walk from Namba Station and the shopping malls in a residential area - which makes it a quiet and serene shrine. It looks amazing! Well worth...More

I came for the design. I stayed to make a wish. I can't really say much, as this is pretty much just a shrine. 100 Yen Sushi nearby though.
