  • Bus trip will take you to the old Oshima House, I came back. Conspicuous white gate, keep our hikiyama exhibition hall are in front, so easy to understand. This is no shrine.

  • Attended during last year's Karatsu Kunchi Festival - very busy but worth the hassle
  • My girlfriend and I visited because of Yuri on Ice and checked out some additional sights while in town. We were surprised to find that the shrine not only had various ceremonial instructions in English, but translated charms and fortunes, too!
  • This is my beloved hometown
  • Karatsu kunchi Festival is a Festival of the shrine. I've done this year. 11 / 2-11 / 4 for three days and festivals are held. 11 / 2 is the highlight scene become night floats beginning from the night. Day 2 is used in the beach sand real hikiyama pulls off seemed to highlight is located near Piazza now? A lot sanding and pull the float out there. We do not know or what hikiyama puller is square so narrow, so I've Ukawa to take pictures, not with feeling. Festival because the Festival was there long before the stage between omicoshi and priest come dressed top the draw in the sand mountains femininity, is feeling good in a solemn tone. Repairs to floats in the popular Red sea bream, was beautiful vermilion. Up and down motion is really adorable ✨ know it well through the photos and videos.

  • It is a sedate Shinto shrine. Next to Karatsu hikiyama Exhibition Hall, there is also free parking. Festival at the shrine of the Karatsu kunchi Festival, runs around powerful hikiyama.

Where to stay in Karatsu

Many of the accommodations in Karatsu form an orderly line next to the Matsuura River, or along the coast. Things certainly get a little more luxurious by the sea, with rooms offering extensive views along the coast, onsite spas, and fine-dining restaurants, as well as good access to the beach. Look inland towards the main train station for a range of business hotels designed for one-night stays, side-street guesthouses, and the odd hostel.
