This shrine was recommended to us by the tourist information advisor. We are so appreciative of her tips. We were wide eyed with wonder the moment we arrived there, our attention captured by the 10 meters tall giant float decorated with interesting traditional figures and scenes. At least one hour is needed to explore the grounds and examine the many fascinating items of interest which includes a well surrounded by three cranes - there is a legend that water of this well grants longevity and eternal youth.
The modern Fukuoka is the largest city in Kyushu developed on the shoreline-dependent port, but earlier on, the banks of the Hakata Canal were the center of the region.
It is not surprising that the oldest upper-end commercial street in Hakata, centered on the Kushida Shrine, is surrounded by historical museums gathered around it.
Kutada Shrine is the Hato-General Guardian Temple built in the last Heian period in ancient Japan. Later, Toyotomi Hideyoshi revival Hakata was once again carried forward.
Fukuoka citizens who believe in Shintoism regard the Kushida Shrine as an important shrine.
Putian will welcome the most popular Hakata Gion Festival in Kyushu in July each year. Many tourists will come here to visit one of the most exciting scenes of the festival: Following the mountains. In each of the 7 different genres, 26 men and women dressed in cloaks and robes are armed with mysterious legends and ancient samurai figures, pavilions and flowers, and the gorgeous mountains are surrounded by crowds. In unison, he shouted the number and went into the Putian Shrine for a week, then went on the street to start a competition for speed and strength.
This huge mountain is displayed in the Putian Shrine, and you can enjoy the exquisite structure without catching up with the festival.
