Trip Planner : Asia / Japan / Kyushu-Okinawa / Fukuoka Prefecture / Fukuoka / Religious Sites / Hakozakigu
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
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.

想分享的不是正殿部分，而是要搭公車會路過的三號國道旁邊的巨大鳥居跟石燈籠。 離旁邊的AEON商場很近，可以看到好像比商場還要高的巨大燈籠。 初次看到真的十分驚訝。 有夠大。
