Nunose-jinja Shrine布忍神社


6 Reviews

This shrine located in Kitashinmachi, Matsubara City is very close to Nunose Station. The origin of the name Nunose is said to be tied with cloth, and so people go to the shrine for blessings for recovery from illness, safety, traffic safety and business prosperity. The main shrine was built in the early Edo period and was restored in 1983 with attractive vivid vermillion colors. Two lion statues, which can be seen in Kano Tanyu's paintings, stand either side of the main building. The main shrine is also a Tangible Cultural Property of Osaka Prefecture. It is famous for its Love Mikuji (fortunes) designed by contemporary artist Ichihara Hiroko. The fortunes have simple text that pierce people's hearts, making many of them draw multiple fortunes.

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."
