The Native Place Tour of The Tale of Genji / Vol. 32


(Front view of the main shrine.)

Introduce Sumiyoshi Shrine located in Osaka.
Sumiyoshi Grand Shrine (住吉大社, Sumiyoshi-taisha) is a Shinto shrine in Sumiyoshi ward in the city of Osaka, Japan.
It is the main shrine of all the Sumiyoshi shrines in Japan.
However, the oldest shrine that enshrines the Sumiyoshi Sanjin, the three Sumiyoshi kami, is the Sumiyoshi shrine in Hakata.
It is called "Sumiyoshi-san" or "Sumiyossan" by the locals, and is famous for the large crowds that come to the shrine on New Year's Day for hatsumōde.
Sumiyoshi Taisha enshrines the Sumiyoshi Sanjin -- Sokotsutsu no Onomikoto, Nakatsutsu no Onomikoto, and Uwatsutsu no Onomikoto -- and Okinagatarashihime no Mikoto (Empress Jingū), and they are collectively known as the "Sumiyoshi Ōkami", the great gods of Sumiyoshi. Another term is "Sumiyoshi no Ōgami no Miya".
It gives its name to a style of shrine architecture known as sumiyoshi-zukuri.

Sumiyoshi Grand Shine was already famous when Murasaki Shikibu wrote the The Tale of Genji. Genji visits the shrine after his return from Akashi to give thanks to the deity for protecting him during the storm at Suma.
The curved bridge in front of the shrine is shown in illustrations of The Tale.
