Hakozaki Shrine

1-22-1 Hakozaki
Fukuoka, 812-8655
+81 92 641 7431
This is one of the three great Japanese shrines dedicated to the Emperor-divinity Hachiman, and a place where Japanese have come to pray for success ever since the shrine's dedication in 921. A number of important cultural treasures are housed within the shrine's precincts. Keep a special eye out for the plaque hanging above the Tower Gate--it is supposed to have been written by the emperor Kameyama at the time of the Mongol invasions. Its inscription--"May the enemy nations prostrate themselves [in defeat]"--was a petition to Hachiman for protection from the invaders.
