Hakozakigu, Fukuoka
(4.2/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Dedicated to the god of war and good fortune, Hakozakigu represents one of the three great Hachiman temples in the country. Originally established in the 10th century, it sustained damage during the Mongol invasions of the 13th century. The Japanese managed to drive off invaders with the help of a divine wind, gaining the temple a burgeoning reputation. Nowadays, this reputation attracts annual visits from professional baseball teams and other local sporting organizations as they pray for victory. Take a peaceful stroll through the ample gardens surrounding the structure, and look out for Hakomatsu, a sacred and revered tree. The fenced-off pine signifies where Japanese emperor Ojin's placenta was buried after his birth. Work out when and for how long to visit Hakozakigu and other Fukuoka attractions using our handy Fukuoka vacation generator.

  • Old possessions as shrine "hakozaki shrine", located in Fukuoka Prefecture, Fukuoka City East District hakozaki. Notice you might have on that, "hakozaki", shrine and hakozaki is the name of a place; The shrine name place intact is too awful and has conveyed the names of ancestors was hakozaki. By the way to the shrine from this venerable, has been as a highly rated Palace tocorono in determining the status of the shrine of "engishiki" woven "hakozaki", during the Heian period Imperial Court will easily find out. Also lesson role first, Hiroyasu, so-called so far during the Kamakura period the country was attacked from China at the time when the main battlefield contains exactly region "hakozaki", Fukuoka City Hakata Bay in the region was a historic fact. The Heian Era original building burnt down miserably in this lesson is in the Muromachi period followed by suo, by the hand of the great daimyo of nagato (present-day Yamaguchi Prefecture), "Ouchi" new shrine haiden (old treasures, now designated), your main majestic magnificent new shrine was built, further hope is built also the magnificent gate (old treasures, now an important cultural asset) in the hands of the Kobayakawa Takahiro later became the Lords of this land during the Momoyama period, all that remains now is almost bordering on the miraculous. Can't help feeling the same impressed that kept it to our ancestors to important shrine and its buildings. In the West off Fukuoka earthquake struck Fukuoka earthquake a few years ago, fortunately no and look the beautiful now all the buildings, without taking too much damage. Talk about the "hakozaki" and is a traditinal absurd disputes on a par, but actually my house is already 80 anniversary. I remember I still had once said that my grandfather (born in 0/1904). Parallel to the Hakata Bay from the site for... terraced "hakozaki-like gate", see draw a line due East. My House is standing there. Still had many disasters ranging from hundreds of years had passed since the gate's Foundation, during this time, the Typhoon and floods, earthquakes and tsunamis. However, once at least that magnificent gate (However, compared to the floor space, with extremely big Cypress roof roof gate) like that never collapsed. And so, here hakozaki's less stable disaster locality. That's why must become "hakozaki" is held here. And don't be thankful that that go live... and I have been saying. I think,, and it is not or. Tried to avoid as much as possible is easy to damage and disaster will focusing on China and Korea, Korea now and built on the north-facing, they built a very grand and brilliant that at Court, "hakozaki" shrine of the normal style is unthinkable, and this ground defense and further of the ability of this country wanted to show no difference in the location that is not easy to imagine. It is recommended that DW group currently maintains it is more than enough embodies luxury and majestic setting of the Momoyama period buildings, and the visit will appreciate visits and, in other words, very carefully and magnificent and bold buildings said there was. Is the stone Torii be Fukuoka of the Edo period feudal Lord Kuroda Nagamasa was donated by national important cultural property. When troops of Hideyoshi's Kyushu hakozaki here becomes a headquarters, "hakozaki" deep Yukari and Toyotomi Hideyoshi, at that time from "hakozaki" shetou Hakata Bay area look fine. at said was followed by Marc "Chiyo-no-Matsubara" tea "thousands, served tea, and hosting reportedly Rikyu donation and Stone lanterns (important cultural asset) remains near a shrine. It is recommended to refer to.
