360° VR panorama of Namba Yasaka Shrine (難波八阪神社 Namba Yasaka Jinja), in Osaka city, Japan. The shrine was once quite large, having the seven standard buildings of a Buddhist temple complex (七堂伽藍 shichidō garan) and 12 attached temples. However, the shrine was closed after the Meiji restoration in 1868 due to the separation of Shinto and Buddhism policy (神仏分離 shinbutsu bunri) of the new government.
In 1945 the shrine’s buildings were burned down in air raids, the current buildings are reconstructions built after the war. The large lion head contains a small stage (獅子舞台 Shishibutai) where dances are performed. The lion head measures 12m high, by 11m wide, and is 10m deep.
