Located in the heart of old Hakata in downtown Fukuoka, Kushida Shrine is my favorite shrine in the city. The best way to get there is to take the subway to Gion Station, and the shrine is a short 3 -5 minute walk away. There is always a lot of activity, including newly weds having their photos taken. Both times that I have been here I have managed to catch couples in their traditional wedding clothes…..
Of course, their get away is in the not so traditional pink bus 🙂
Believe me it was not easy for this beautiful bride to get back on that bus!
This is a perfect sight seeing locale for the budget traveler. It’s free!!
