Hakata’s symbol Kushida Shrine
The Kushida Shrine is located in the center of Fukuoka City. The Shrine has the lovely nickname Mr. Kushida and is the main point for Yamakaza Festival in Hakata, which is held every year from July 1st till July 15th
The decoration from the Yamakaza Festival is exhibited the whole year. Close to Hakata and Tenjin, the access to the shrine is really easy and convenient.
Do you know O-mikuji? O-mikuji are random fortunes written on strips of paper at Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples. At Kushida Shrine, these fortunes are available in 5 languages. Our presenter Vicky tried it too.
Japanese, English, Korean and Chinese (simplified and traditional) O-mikuji are available. The price for one is 50Yen.
Definitely a spiritual and cultural experience you shoudn’t miss.
