Description:

This spring is part of the Minase Shinto Shrine just outside of central Osaka. Locals collect water here regularly and the location is beautiful and very accessible. A spigot and also drinking trough with a canopy, drinking ladles etc. Very picturesque and worth a visit.

Directions from Nearest Address

From Minase Station (Hankyu Line) walk down the road along the side of the rail line heading NE. Walk for maybe 8 minutes until you reach a 5 way intersection with a road going under the rail line. Veer left, but not extreme left, and head down the road until it ends in a T and walk left. The shrine should be visible. The spring is just through the Shrine entrance on the left.
