A famous Shinto shrine with a lot of Sakura trees. Has traditional red colour series of gates. Calm and nuce place
We were here on Sunday and they had a ceremony. Lots of people lined up to pay tribute to the Yamakasa god, and they rang the bells for blessings. Beside the shrine, there is where the Yamakasas are decorated. The shrine houses many other interesting buildings and is worth…
Came here for Lunar New Year prayer and blessings. This shrine is dedicated to Hakata Gion Yamakasa God. Absolutely beautiful and highly recommended to visit. Don’t forget to see the back and front of the huge Yamakasa on display when you enter the shrine.
A nice quiet shrine with beautiful traditional Japanese decors and gardens. There are also restrooms and vending machines inside.
Right off the Kawabata Shopping / Pedestrian Street is the Kushida Shrine. Not a very big shrine but if you are in the area, it's worth a quick look. Just don't expect too much. It is right between the Nakasukawabata and Gion subway stations right in the heart of Fukuoka.
