    Sofukuji Temple

    6-1 Gokusho-machi
    Fukuoka, 812-0037
    +81 92 431 3003
    Five minutes' walk from Hakata Station, Shofukuji Temple offers a retreat from the world. Although still a working temple, the secluded walks and shaded gardens give one the impression of having traveled back in time. This Rinzai-sect temple was founded in the 12th century by the priest Eisai-Myoan, and is the oldest Zen temple in Japan. Its buildings house a number of important artifacts including personal effects of the priest and noted sumi-e artist Sengai, an ancient korai bell from Korea, and a votive tablet presented to the temple by the Emperor Gotoba in the Kamakura Period.
