Hakozakigu, Fukuoka

(4.2/5 based on 200+ 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.

  • Translation game or something was coming up I visited also had little time for, but it was apparent well on the subway route map is not yet visited. And it was a weekday, few worshippers could visit in a relaxed atmosphere. From line Kaizuka station staff. A similar attractions have gone overlooked because less information is carefully looking at other comments are interesting, but....

  • From subway hakozaki-miyamae station away. You can visit in a solemn atmosphere. There are also historic as a pebble and former ship's anchor stone character of the enemy surrendered a strong impact.

  • Went by car because it was too much a little holiday traffic jams not able to park without waiting for the parking. Still mostly decent people.
