The Namba Yasaka is known as the “Lion Sanctuary”, as it houses the huge statue of the head Ema-Den. The 12 meter high by 11 meter wide statue has become the symbol of the shrine, as well as a popular photo spot in Osaka.

Inside the lion’s mouth is a type of stage where various events related to the sanctuary are held throughout the year.
