Went on Sunday. when arrived, realized it was 357 festivals ( direct translate from banner ) - in which the kids go to Temple and pray for Good score at age 3, 5, 7 A nice experience to see kids dress in traditional clothes ( Kimono ) & perform the Ceremony with the entire family. A taste of Japanese culture

Wife really wanted to go to a festival and planned our trip to make sure we made this one. There were hundreds of stalls selling all different types of food, sweets, and games. The takoyaki and yakisoba there were incredible. Be sure to bring cash as most if not all only accept cash. It was pretty crowded at night but... More

Hakozaki is an important Hachiman shrine and well worth a visit. The approach to the shrine is impressive because of the number of large torii leading to the shrine. There are gardens and shaded walks inside where you can linger and enjoy a quiet moment. I went in June and was lucky to see the shrine's hydrangea garden in full... More

One of the larger temples we saw on this trip and relatively quiet. In a way most shrines are set up the same way and this is a fine example if you have only time to visit a limited number.

This is one of the oldest temple in Japan with great fame, inside the temple there is a big flower park to walk around, really quiet area.

Hakozaki Shrine is a short train ride from Hakata Station by JR Kagoshima Line Train (Hakozaki Sta and 5 minute walk) but we took the Hakozaki Line instead and align at Hakozaki Miyamae sta. The beautiful Shrine is famous for its unique front tower gate “敵国降伏.” We visited in early November and probably missed out the Hojoya festival and annual... More

We had a short visit at the Hakozaki shrine during our trip last September 2014. The shrine was just a short walk from the Hakozaki-Miyamae station (one-way subway fare was 260 yen from Hakata station). The place was also very serene just like other shrines in Japan but here were some of the interesting things we saw and learned at... More

This is a beautiful shrine. We cannot say that much extra about it as it is so like the many other thousands of shrines in Japan. It is always clean, peaceful and beautiful. We always like walking through it for the calming experience. Any shrine we go to is always nice. No matter if it is the first time, or... More
