Kushida Shrine

The Kushida Shrine is one of Fukuoka’s most important sights and a much-loved local landmark. Dedicated to the Shinto gods Amaterasu and Susanoo, it is said to date back to 757 C.E. During the annual Hakata Gion Yamakasa summer festival when men race one-ton floats through the streets, you can inspect the flamboyant kazariyama, or festival floats, on-site. It also displays the largest Otafuku mask in Japan and a well where visitors can pray for eternal youth.
