Osaka Tenman-gu Shrine is one of the many important shrines in Japan. It enshrines the god of scholarship, Sugawara no Michizane, so it’s very popular with students. It was built in 949 AD by the emperor Murakami, but it was burnt down and rebuilt a number of times throughout history. The building we see today was built in 1845.

Tenjin Matsuri, a boat festival, is hosted here.

We stopped by here real quick. I was impressed by the details around the roof.
