Kushida Shrine - Review

This shrine, dedicated to the goddess Amaterasu, is the city's oldest. It was built in 757. Locals are much more enamored with it than tourists, as it is thought to be the guardian temple of the city.

The first item of interest, after you pass the elegant red torii gates, is the ancient gingko tree in the yard, said to be one thousand years old. Surround it are monument stones, including the Etoarror plate, said to have been taken from the location of the 13th century Mongol invasion. See the fountain of three cranes, into which is carved the image of men pulling along a huge float. That represents one of the city's major festivals - the Hakata GionYamakasa - of which the shrine is a host.

Also on the shrine grounds is the Hakata Historical Museum.
