Travel Guide - Osaka Tenmangu Shrine


Osaka Tenmangu Shrine was founded in 949 in honor of Michizane Sugawara, a noted scholar of Chinese literature. Since Michizane came to be worshipped as the god of learning after his death, a lot of test-takers visit here to pray for their success in the examination.
