Sumiyoshi Shrine, Hakata

3.7
Traverse the iconic and supposedly spiritually cleansing bridge at Sumiyoshi Shrine, the city's iconic shrine. One of the oldest in the country, it probably dates back to 211 CE, a flagship of a network of some 2,000 Sumiyoshi shrines nationwide. The main shrine represents the oldest example of Sumiyoshi-zukuri architecture, characterized by a straight, uncomplicated roof, gabled entrance, and simple vermillion-and-white interior. Head to the intricately rendered gardens for a peaceful spot to relax and reflect, watching the koi and terrapins in the pond.

  • After visiting Kushida Shrine, visiting Sumiyoshi Shrine, going to Hakata Station and moving by municipal subway, and finally visiting Hakozaki Hachimangu Shrine is a New Year's schedule for hakata people, but Sumiyoshi-no-miya is a shrine with a deep relationship with business.

  • When you arrive in Hakata and have plenty of time, you will first visit Sumiyoshi Shrine. I think that it is a wonderful shrine with a very high spirit.
