Hokoku-jinja Shrine (豊國神社)

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.

Review of Hokoku Shrine

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/12/08 Historical Shrine
Hokoku Shrine was near to Osaka Castle and had statues in the honor of a Saurai warrior. A serene place for worship and worth for visit while travel in this area.
Reviewed:2019/11/20 More a great Hall
My opinion is that it is more of a great hall than a shrine. Not much to see. All built of massive pieces of timber. Built in 1587.

100y to visit

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.

          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."
