Sumiyoshi Jinja Shrine


"For Fishermen and Ocean Travelers"

Well known for its festival (celebrated once every three years), Sumiyoshi Jinja Shrine is dedicated to Sumiyoshi Myojin—the Shinto deity of fishermen and ocean travelers. Featuring an enormous gate covered in copper plate, this rather plain building has quite splendid rafters (in chigi style). There are nearly 2,000 Sumiyoshi shrines scattered throughout Japan. It is believed that Empress Jingu established Sumiyoshi Grand Shrine (south of Osaka) to guard her during her invasion of Korea.
