Sennichimae "Minyamin" Summer Festival

This is an event related to the Sennichimae shopping district mascot Minyamin, a maneki-neko (beckoning cat). It is fun for the whole family. The origin of the place name is the 1,000-day Buddhist memorial services (sennichi eko) held at Hozen-ji and other temples in the Edo period. It is also the birthplace of Osaka's first moving picture production company.


"Minyamin", mascot of the shopping arcade bringing happiness, will also appear during the festival.
