Considered the most important religious site in the area, Kushida Shrine dates back to 757 and features a thousand-year-old gingko tree as its shade. If you visit during mid-July, you'll have a chance to participate in the largest festival in Fukuoka, Yamakasa Gion Matsuri. During this fest, seven neighborhood teams race with giant kazariyama floats.

Kushida Shrine Reviews
來了好幾次，每次的感受都不同，位於熱鬧的街道裡，不難找，每個季節的風情也不同，若有祭典也非洲的熱鬧，值得來參觀 more »Come a few times, each time the feeling is different, located in the streets, not hard to find, each season is also different, if there is a festival is also African, it is worth coming to
山笠大きい。博多駅から歩いて祇園まで行き散策しながらの訪問です。祇園というだけあってお寺多い。なかなか楽しめる場所にあります。やっぱり山笠は見る価値あります。 more »Yamakasa is big. It is a visit while walking to Gion on foot from Hakata Station. There are a lot of temples because there is Gion. It's a pretty fun place. After all, yamakasa is worth seeing.
A historical shrine located not far from the Canal City mall. Enjoyed the atmosphere there as it is quite peaceful to walk around the shrine. There was a big giant float (kazariyama) placed at the shrine during my visit. It is humongous and I wonder how the people there can carry it and walk around during the festival, really impressive… Please drop by if you are touring around that area.
