The Kushida Shrine of Hakata is one of the oldest shrines in Fukuoka. Famous for its Hakata Gion Yamakasa Festival, this shrine has many amazing attractions such as the largest otafuku mask in Japan and a fountain where people pray for eternal youth.
Its history dates back to 757, when Hakata flourished as a port city that welcomed delegations from mainland China and Korea.
Hakata in downtown Fukuoka is a very popular spot for travelers who want to try delicious local dishes like Hakata Ramen, as well as the opportunity to shop. Although it looks like a busy business district, Hakata has a whole other side to it, as the city also has numerous shrines and temples.
