Hokoku-jinja Shrine豊国神社


This Shinto shrine is located right next to Sakura-mon Gate on the grounds of Osaka Castle. Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Hideyori and Hidenaga are all enshrined here. This shrine is well known for life advancement because of Toyotomi Hideyoshi rising from commoner to ruler. Worshippers pray at the shrine but they also hold wedding ceremonies. Visitors can also purchase omamori protection charms with the Toyotomi family crest or motifs of gourds, and ema wishing tags with a picture of Toyotomi Hideyoshi sittings barefoot.

Has the statue in honor of a samurai warrior. Very serene place. simple yet exudes respect for the person. may take you quite a walk around but if the climate is cool then it is okay.

This was a beautiful area to walk around and right next the the castle, talk about two birds with one stone.
Reviewed:2017/03/31 Hidden gem!
This shrine is right across the Osaka Castle entry. Worthwhile to visit! Plus, a great place to take photos and see cherry blossoms.

          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."
