Kushida Shrine, in Fukuoka-cty


Kushida Shrine is located in Fukuoka-city, Fukuoka-prefecture.

The Shrine of Hakata Gion Yamagasa Festival.  Located in Hakata nearby Canal City Hakata 

and was built in 757 as a guardian deity of Hakata. The most exciting summer festival in Kyushu, 

Hakata Gion Yamakasa is held in the shrine in July.  The tall Kazari Yamakasa, a luxuriously 

decorated float, is always displayed.  The float was constructed without using even a single nail.

The Oi Yamakasa, in which floats weighing over a ton race through the streets of Hakata carried

on the shoulders of 26 people, presents a dynamic spectacle of bravery and strength that attracts

many spectators.

The shrine is also famous as place of Setsubun ceremony ( Bean throwing 

ceremony) which is held on February 3rd every year.
