Traditional Events/Religious Festivals
Osaka's numerous festivals provide revealing insights into historical and contemporary Japan. Temples and shrines play host to the majority of events: Japan’s first Buddhist temple, Shitennoji Temple, is always a hub of activity, while Sumiyoshitaisha Shrine, in the city’s south, is widely considered the most popular. Another highlight is the Narita Fudoson Temple in Neyagawa, which hosts Kansai’s largest setsubun (bean throwing) event.
