Only about 5 minutes away from Tochijo Temple, you’ll find yourself at Kushida Shrine! Also known by the locals as, “Okushida-san”, it is widely known for the summer festival – Hakata Gion Yamakasa festival.
Similar to the Fushimi Inari Shrine, it has those orange pillars – just a bit smaller with a lot less people!

The Tochoji Temple was built in 806 AD by famous a Buddhist priest, Kukai. A lot of worshipers visit the temple for the Fudo Festival in January, Setsubun Festival in February and the anniversary of his death in March.
