Kushida-jinja Shrine櫛田神社


A Shinto shrine dedicated to Amaterasu (left shrine), Ohatanushi (central shrine), and Susanoo (right shrine); and the oldest patron shrine of Hakata. Famous for the Hakata Gion Yamakasa Festival held in July, the stunning yamakasa floats used in the festival are on permanent display on the shrine’s grounds. The waters of the Well of the Crane of the Miraculous Spring which well up from beneath the main shrine building are said to grant health and long life and are quite the attraction for tourists and locals alike.

Lovely shrine surrounded by ginkgo trees. Be sure to see the huge festival floats in the side area next to the shrine building. It's amazing how much detail goes into the characters on the floats!
