Sumiyoshi Taisha Overview
Also known as the Sumiyoshi Grand Shrine, the Sumiyoshi Taisha is one of the most beautiful places. Ranking amongst the oldest shrines in the country, this shrine dates back to the 3rd century, even before the introduction of Buddhism. It is also famous for the Sumiyoshi-zukuri, a unique style of architecture found in Japanese shrines that do not take influence from the other Asian styles.

This shrine is the main shrine of over 2000 Sumiyoshi shrines scattered across Japan. It is home to the Kami (Shinto gods) who are said to protect the travellers, sailors and fishermen going to the sea.
