Hiraoka Shrine枚岡神社

Shrine

This shrine is located up the stairs just east of the Kintetsu Nara Line's Hiraoka Station. It is in Kawachi Province (before 1868), the main deity is Amenokoyane no mikoto. It is said that the shrine was built three years before the crowning of the first Emperor, Emperor Jinmu. To the south of the shrine is a ume (plum) tree forest, the scent of which caused it to be selected as one of Japan's top 100 aromatic landscapes. It is a very popular tourist destination. At the end of the year, a religious comedy festival is held at Hiraoka Shrine. In this event, the participants laugh continuously along with the head priest for 20 minutes. The media gives a special report on the event, and the number of visiting tourists increases year after year.

          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."
