Nice Night View

Visited at night where you can see the city lights and the cherry trees lighted up. Quite disappointed as there were not many trees

Located on a hill, you have a nice view on the Western outskirts of Fukuoka. Atago or Atago Gongen is protecting the city from fire.The original Atago Shrine can be found on Mount Atago near Kyoto. It serves as the head shrine for almost one thousand Atago shrines in japan. If you go to the Atago Shrine in Fukuoa very... More

There're several routes to reach this shrine from Tenjin or Hakata station area. The easiest is alight the subway line at Muromi station and cross the bridge and the intersection under the expressway flyover. Then turn right at the shrine sign (not at the intersection). It is a kind of narrow and winding residence slope road. You'll be able to... More

Although this shrine is away from the city centre access is reasonably ewasy and cheap via the Metro. From the station there is an uphill walk of about 0.5 miles / 0.8 km to the shrine. A very simple shrine on a couple of levels up from the Entrance Tori.

We alight at subway station Muromi and it took us a good 15 mins to cross the Meji Dori bridge and reach the ‘foothill’. From here it was a rather steep 15 mins up meandering slope, with resident houses on both sides! Not much sign to direct you but be confident as you step up. Once you sight the shrine... More

We visited during Sakura season, a little on the early side and Atago Jinja Shrine was our favourite of the variety of Sakura viewing places we went to. It's a bit of a walk up the hill but worth it for the Sakura and the view out across Fukuoka.

A steep hike of 20 minutes from the subway station but well worth it as not only is the shrine nice to see but the views are better than paying to go up the Fukuoka tower.

The view on Fukuoka from this shrine is simply amazing. The shrine itself is ok, it looked in renovation or something. I really enjoy the view there and I think it’s the best view on Fukuoka, you can see almost everywhere from up there. I don’t know if actually many tourists know this place, by its worth it for the... More
