A three-minute walk from Minami-Morimachi Station on the Tanimachi Line and Sakaisuji Line subways as well as JR Osaka-Temmangu Station. This Shinto shrine is located just off the Hanshin Expressway Loop Route Kitahama exit and is known to locals as the Horikawa-no-Ebessan. The shrine is dedicated to Hiruko. The shrine is believed to grant worshippers business prosperity. The shrine is famous for its Toka Ebisu Festival held from January 9th through 11th each year. During the three days of the festival, the grounds bustle with tens of thousands of visitors. The festival continues into the night, during which time the approach to the shrine and its grounds are lit up with lanterns and the festival shopping arcade becomes filled with fun night stalls. Enoki Shrine, the shrine's auxiliary shrine, is also known as Danjiri Inari Shrine.

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."
