What to Expect
Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine (National Important Cultural Property) has various benefits such as mischief and home security, as well as passing examination.
In Dazaifu, sticky rice cake called Umegayamochi is popular. If you like somesweet, I recommend it.
The 234-meter high Fukuoka Tower boasts the highest in Japan as a beach tower.
From the observation room 123 meters above the ground you can see Fukuoka city and Hakata bay.
About 100 shops are lined up in Tenjin underground shopping street with a stone pavement . Besides the underground passage of the subway station, 20 buildings and shopping zones are connected from the underground shopping street. It is attractive that you can shop without getting wet even on rainy days.
Kushida Shrine is the Sochinju (the center place to pray for local gods) of Hakata. It is also known as the departure point of "Oiyamagasa'' (Chasing Yamagasa) of Hakata Gion Yamagasa which is a festival representing Fukuoka city.
You can see the "Kazariyamagasa'' (decoration of Yamagasa), which is permanently installed.
The city view from not only Fukuoka Tower but also the bus on the city highway will be enjoyable.
