Miyajidake-jinja Shrine (宮地嶽神社)

This Shinto shrine is dedicated to Empress Jingu, Katsumura-no-Okami and Katsuyori-no-Okami. A large number of visitors come to pay homage to the gods of business success, road safety and family security. The special shimenawa rope hung at the inner shrine is 11 meters long and weighs 3 tons, making it Japan’s largest. The Okunomiya Fudo Jinja Shrine at the back of the shrine is located inside a large stone chamber belonging to the Maruzuka Kofun ancient tomb. Twice a year, the sun setting into the sea shines a light on the torii gate and road up to the shrine, creating a “road of light” leading to the shrine. This appears in February and October, so be sure to visit after checking the schedule.

          The most northerly of Kyushu island's prefectures, Fukuoka comprises castle towns, seaside parks, and Hakata ramen, one of Japan's most famous noodle dishes. Whether due to its good location or its unique charm, the prefecture's capital, Fukuoka city, has been voted one of the most desirable places to live in the country - a close-knit community, a thriving food scene, and accessible nature combine for irresistibly laid-back city vibes.
