This is a demonic shrine which is less common. Different types of oni and demons are inside and it's definitely worth popping into for a peak.

The magnificence of the shrine can only be appreciated when one is there physically. There are no other temples in Osaka which has such a unique structure! Worth a visit!

Definitely a great Shrine to visit because it's different to all the others. Not busy at all and only a short walk from trains. My kids loved it as it was different to anything else they've seen.

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.

Despite the surrounding area being pretty uninteresting, the Namba Yasaka Shrine is only around a 10 minute walk from Namba, not too out of the way from other sightseeing. Small area to walk around and see the lion head statue and temple. Good for pictures,...More

I stayed at a guesthouse near Namba station and based on my google map research, it is only 12 mins walk southwest from my guesthouse. I took 3 attempts to walk my way to the temple but every attempt ended up in another part of...More
