  • In designation only saga, it is not stored in a large warehouse at the back of the Karatsu shrine "permanent floats". I keep Karatsu Karatsu shrine is famous in chi祭. The float's Festival different from Nagasaki and Hakata, the huge red snapper", a huge helmet and case on the floats parade through the city on the ropes. And also of Karatsu shrine in storage and wait until next year. You have to glass in a warehouse because you can see at any time.

  • Karatsu shrine was erected beginning in the Edo period the 755 times passed and was at the time of the transfer to the place of the present city Castle was a castle. Relatively quiet location at the center of the town La but better than the feeling of a gentleman well in big cities. Next to the Civic Center and hiki-Yama Museum and near the old town because the takatori Mansion is also known as the center of the tourism seemed to be able to do.

  • Dangjin Kun's hikiyama exhibition hall across the street from the shrine. Karatsu kunchi Festival is done as a Festival of Karatsu shrine. Whats the nokyo-sho in the shrine, next to the main office. Nokyo-Sho, the handwriting and very good hand and nokyo-sho album front page yutoku Inari Shrine, ASO shrine more than splendor. But I think God's make this assessment of whether or not, still a good hand and be happy. Karatsu shrine nokyo-sho album also dangjin Kun's design was nice.

  • 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!
  • I was surprised at the large Torii gate. It was a shrine town yet in quiet, dignified. I was lucky, and the Shinto shrine as well as after.

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.
