The open-air shrine is a place to commemorate love (there is a legend of a couple of martyrs). There is a 1100-year-old legend of the Royal Church God, the patron saint of Zenggenzaki and Meitan. The painted horses here are also about love. The figure below has the shape of Q version. But what's more interesting is that this is Osaka's "ghost market", which is the old goods market. There is a junk market on Fridays of the first and third weeks of each month. Here is a screenplay "Xiongye" which I found. It's a handwritten script from 100 years ago. It's still a favorite script. Very cheap. Here I feel the life of Osaka is very satisfying.
The lively and fashionable area of Osaka and Meitan hides in the streets of Tseng Gen-zaki shop in East Meitan, a small "open-air shrine" with a small community, but it is an old shrine with a history of thousands of years. Founded more than 1300 years ago, Shaoyan, the God of wisdom and commerce, Kan Yuan, the God of learning, Emperor Tianzhao and the God of self-respect, are renowned in Osaka today for being a sacred place for lovers.
