Introduction Osaka Tenmangu dates from the middle of the 10th century. On historical record, it is said that this shrine has experienced no less than seven fires since then. Especially, by the two largest fires of them, which broke out in 1724 and 1837, this shrine was completely destroyed. However, about six years later, in 1843, a lot of self-sacrificing volunteers in Osaka helped rebuild Osaka Tenmangu. Today's main building was built then.

Even during the Second World War, Osaka Tenmangu wasn't burned to the ground because many devout and religious people protected this shrine without taking care of their own houses. So, it is said that couples who have their marriage at Osaka Tenmangu can get over any difficulty.
