Tsuyu no Tenjinsha (Ohaatsu Tenjin) Shrineお初天神(露天神社)

Temple

The Tsuyu no Tenjinsha Shrine, which is located in the middle of a bustling area of Kita Ward, Osaka City, is reputed to have been built around the year 700. The Bunraku puppet drama “Sonezaki Shinju” was written by Chikamatsu Monzaemon about a tragic double suicide that occurred within the Shrine in 1703; as the name of the heroine of this drama was Ohatsu, the Shrine is now commonly referred to as the “Ohatsu Tenjin.” The Shrine is believed to be a good place to pray for success in business, safe journeys, or a good marriage, and as result it receives a large number of worshippers every day, particularly local shopkeepers and women. A flea market is held here on the first Friday of every month, and the Shrine is famous for its annual festival held in July each year.

通っていた短大も曽根崎心中の縁の地。
こないだまで気付きもせんかったけど。

繁華街の喧騒がふわっとなくなる空間で、結構好きなんだよね。

急に吹き抜けの広場に出た感じ。海底洞窟に急に光が差し込む空間みたいな感じ。

今は茅の輪くぐりの時期。
前も一度、この時期に通り掛かってお詣りして帰った。

This is a small shrine near to Osaka Umeda Station. It pays tribute to a star crossed lovers, like Romeo and Juliet. Very peaceful place.

The official name for this tiny temple is Tsuyunoten Tenjinsha, but apparently it is often referred to as Ohatsu Tenjin, named after the female protagonist in a story about two ill-fated lovers.

          While Osaka prefecture is the country's second smallest prefecture, its capital, Osaka City, is the country’s third-largest and arguably one of the most popular in the Kansai region thanks to its vibrant nightlife, the Osaka people’s openness, and its much-loved cuisine, which has earned it the nickname "the nation’s kitchen."
