Hakozaki-gu Shrine (筥崎宮)

Also known as “Hakozaki Hachiman-gu Shrine,” alongside Usa Hachiman-gu Shrine and Iwashimizu Hachiman-gu Shrine this is one of the three great Hachiman-gu Shrines of Japan. Emperor Ojin is the main enshrined deity, along with Empress Jingu and Tamayori-hime. In Nishioku there is the “Ajisai Garden” and “Shinen Flower Park,” with spring being the best time to see peonies, and the early summer best for hydrangeas. The “Tamaseseri Festival” that takes place each January 3 is a famous festival in which there are two wooden balls that represent yin and yang and bring good fortune and the contestants vie over the “yang” ball.

Review of Hakozaki-gu

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/09/25 A jovial celebration
We were lucky to watch the ceremony marking the first day of the Hojoya Festival in the evening of September 12 and the procession of the portable shrines. We did not actually have the time to see...
Reviewed:2019/05/17 Beautiful and easy to find
We went and really enjoyed it. Google maps may take you to side entrance which works great if you need to park a car.

Near exit 1 of hakozaki-miya-mae station... not as crowdedas u expected. Worth a visit at least if u in Fukuoka.
