Great 'Otafuku' faces welcome you at Kushida Shrine!

From Jan. 23th to Feb. 7th, big, funny women faces are displayed at the gates of Kushida shrine. They are called ‘Otafuku’ in Japanese, which literally means ‘lots of happiness’. If you pass through these gates and worship at this shrine, it is believed that good fortune will be brought to you. The photo mentions the main gate of Kushida shrine. Other two Otafuku masks with different face expressions are displayed at other gates during that period. Why don’t you visit the shrine to check all Otafuku gates and get good fortune?

Mr. Yoshiharu made an itinerary that fits our schedule. He gave clear explanation during the tour. He also gave great suggestion on reserving seat for the train. Although we were almost late for his train, he was calm and still let us do some shopping. Before we said goodbye, he gave us a thoughtful souvenir. Thanks Mr. Yoshiharu.

Yoshiharu is a very engaging guide. He was patient with our crazy, boisterous bunch of 12 middle aged ladies who had 12 different agendas for the day. Saw Fukuoka’s sights and appreciated these with his explanations.
