Fujisaki Hachiman-gu Shrine

Shrine
This shrine is located in Chuo Ward, Kumamoto City. Founded in 935, it honors the Emperor Ojin, Empress Jingu, and Sumiyoshi Sanjin (Three Gods). It was the primary place of worship for the lords of Kumamoto Castle during the Edo period. The shrine was destroyed by fire in 1877 during the Satsuma Rebellion and later moved to its present location and rebuilt. Every September they hold the Annual Autumn Festival of Fujisaki Hachiman-gu Shrine with a procession of accompanying soldiers and elaborately decorated horses.
