Meet The Giant Japanese Lion (Shishi) At Namba Yasaka Jinja
The south of Osaka city has many exciting spots. 10 minutes walking distance from Namba station you can find Namba Yasaka Jinja, a shrine that’s a little bit different than your average shrine.
Walk through the eastern archway and the first thing that you see the giant head of the Shishi. The Shishi is about 12 meters tall and inside of his mouth is a stage where Shinto rituals are performed. Every year on the third Sunday of January a Shinto ritual that has been being performed since the Edo period (that’s about 400 years ago!) takes place. The ritual is called Tsunahiki Shinji and involves a giant tug-of-war!
While staying at HOTEL THE FLAG in Shinsaibashi, take the time to have a look around this part of Osaka’s unique history!
