Shinno Matsuri

On the 22nd and 23rd of November, from 9am, will be held a very important festival in Osaka : the Shinno Matsuri. The small Sukunahikona shrine (少彦名神社) will be crowded with people coming to celebrate the free distribution of medicines during a plague of cholera in 1822. This shrine is also known as Shrine of the Health and Medicine Gods. Don't forget to buy the little paper tiger, as a charm to protect you from diseases !

To go there : Get off at the Kitahama subway station and walk down the avenue for few minutes toward south (google map).
