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.
