A 1,000-year-old gingko tree shades this shrine, which was built in 757, and serves as the starting point for a famous annual summer race. The Hakata Historical Museum is also on the shrine grounds.

I was on my way to see the Ocktoberfest in a nearby park when I happened on this temple. Beautiful architectural details. Surprising statues of cranes and a heroic horse.
