VISIT FUKUOKA

Namiori-jinja Shrine’s Surfing Rabbit

This shrine located in Fukutsu City’s Tsuyazaki district enshrines 3 deities: Sumiyoshi Myoujin, Shika Myoujin, and Kifune Myoujin. Seoritsu-hime is enshrined here, and this shrine is said to raise visitors’ fortune. A secret sacred place, there is a ’wave-surfing rabbit’ statue that was dedicated to the shrine in 1866. Every year in July, the ’Tsuyazaki Gion Yamakasa’ (a city-designated Intangible Cultural Property) is performed, where visitors are privileged to see the ’yamakasa’ (a festival float) decorated with Tsuyazaki dolls. The float racing through the narrow streets is a jaw-dropping sight.
