A lover's sanctuary in the Osaka Kita and Umeda area, Ohatsu Tenjin (officially Tsuyuno Tenjinsha), beholds one of Japan's greatest love stories. Japan's 'Romeo and Juliet', the story of Ohatsu and Tokubei has kept lovers flocking to the shrine for generations.
Osaka Tenmangu, or 'Tenjisan' as it's known by the locals, is the most famous of all the tenjin/tenmangu shrines throughout Japan. It is also home to Osaka's biggest festival, the Tenjin Matsuri, which is held each July. It is one of the three greatest festivals in Japan, and the world's greatest boat festival.
