Travel Guide - Hakozakigu Shrine


Established in 923 by the Emperor Daigo, the present structures date back to the mid-16th to early 17th centuries. Hakozakigu Shrine is one of the three major Hachimangu Shrines in Japan, along with Usa-jingu in Oita and Iwashimizu Hachimangu in Kyoto. Its stone Torii-gate, Romon main gate, Honden main hall, Haiden hall, and stone lantern are designated as national important cultural properties. An important festival, Hojoya, takes place here from September 12–18 every year.
Along the main approach to the shrine is Hakozaki Shrine Flower Garden which features peonies and other flowering plants in season.
