Osaka Temmangu Shrine is one of the most well-known shrines in all of Japan. It enshrines Sugawara no Michizane, an old Japanese scholar now revered as the god of learning. Many Japanese students come to the shrine and pray for their academic performance and exams to go well. Every year in July, Tenjin Matsuri Festival, a traditional festival of Osaka and one of the top three traditional festivals in Japan, is held here. It is known for its lively boat parades and spectacular fireworks show.
