Tengachaya Teahouse Ruins
Just over 400 years ago, Hideyoshi Toyotomi journeyed to Sumiyoshi Grand Shrine and Sakai. During that trip, Hideyoshi is said to have rested at this teahouse and enjoyed the surrounding views. It was this that led to the teahouse and the area being dubbed Tengachaya ("Shogun's tea house"). The teahouse itself (Megiya") was destroyed by war; however, the ruins remained. A huge camphor tree, an earthen storehouse, and a stone statue could be seen at the site, and the site was restored in 1987.
