Here, while we learn some history of Osaka city, we pray for your good luck.

Around the shrine, there are some traditional stores that sell Japanese staple foods like miso and umeboshi, so we visit some of them to learn stories behind Japanese traditional food culture.

We also stop at a local street food stand to find out the secret taste of a croquette for which people never stop queuing.
