The tourist attraction in Japan that I want to tell you about today is Fukuoka Prefecture in Kyushu region. Fukuoka, largest city of Kyushu, is an area that includes city of Fukuoka and city of Dazaifu with its historical ruins.
Fukuoka Prefecture in Kyushu area has many tourist attractions, and area also has many delicacies. Here I have to mention tonkotsu ramen. It uses tonkotsu ramen, which is made from a milky white pork bone soup. The noodles are basically thin, straight flour noodles. It can be said that tonkotsu ramen is a specialty of Kyushu.
The following editor will introduce you to five main attractions of Fukuoka Prefecture, Kyushu, Japan, and a shrine with a history of 1295.Jiasui Theater
The first scenic spot I want to introduce is Jiasui Theater. The Kaho Theater, also known as Shiba House (Chiba House refers to traditional Japanese theater), is located in Iizuka City, Fukuoka Prefecture, and is an important tangible cultural asset in Japan. This theater can accommodate 1200 people. Watching Japanese dramas here allows you to fully plunge into history of Japanese culture.
The Kasui Theater was built in 1931. In addition to kabuki, it will also host circuses, fights and other musical and artistic events, and can also be used as a wedding venue.Dazaifu Tenmangu
The second scenic spot I want to talk about is Dazaifu Tenmangu. This is temple of god of learning, and more than 7 million believers come to pray to him every year. Because he is the god of learning, he is very popular with students preparing for their exam. Dazaifu Tenmangu used to be a place of cultural exchange between Japan and other parts of Asia, which is why it is very popular with Far Eastern and Asian tourists.
Various ceremonies and celebrations will also be held here, starting with changing of gods in early January. During ceremony, faithful pray to gods that they will turn what they inadvertently lied last year into future. Year of sincerity and auspiciousness. There is also Onisube Shinji, a great fire ceremony used to ward off illness and bad luck. It also has 200 different varieties and over 6,000 plum trees, and has now become a famous scenic spot in Japan to watch plum blossoms in full bloom.Haozaki Palace
The third scenic spot I want to talk about is Yuzaki Palace. "Haozaki Palace", "Usa Shrine" and "Ishikimizu Hachiman Shrine" are among three main shrines in Japan. The main god of these palaces is Emperor Ojin. The creation of Hazuzaki Palace has a long history, and there are different opinions about period of construction. According to records of Kojiki, temple was built in 921.
In addition to 'main hall', 'worship hall', 'romon', 'ichi no torii' and other important buildings recognized as important cultural assets scattered here, there are also male worshippers. Teams compete for wooden treasure balls to predict good or bad sacrifices for the year.
There will also be a "release meeting" in fall, where captured fish and animals will be released to promote ritual of not killing animals. During year, various events will be held at Fujiki Palace, so tourists who come to visit shrine are very busy.Fukuoka Tower
The fourth attraction I want to talk about is Fukuoka Tower. Fukuoka Tower, also known as Seaside Tower, has a total length of 234 m. This tower can be called tallest tower in Japan. In 1989, Fukuoka celebrated its 100th anniversary as a city, and it so happened that Fukuoka Tower was built in seaside center of Momochi, which had been reclaimed from sea, to commemorate occasion.
The Fukuoka Tower is decorated with 8,000 mirrored windows, which is why it is also called "mirror sail". The observatory offers a panoramic view of city streets of Fukuoka, and romantic night scene, like a jewel box at night, stretches as far as eye can see. Depending on season, Fukuoka Tower also hosts light events. As a symbol of Fukuoka, Fukuoka Tower can also appreciate its beautiful view at night. So friends, don't miss Fukuoka Tower.Xiangshi Palace
The fifth attraction I want to talk about is Xiangshi Palace. Kashii Palace is one of 16 main shrines in Japan, designed to host Imperial Festival once every 10 years, where emperor meets imperial envoy. Kashii Palace is an ancient shrine with 1800 years of history. It is said that in order to propitiate soul of Emperor Zhonggai who died here 200 years ago, Empress Jinggong built an ancestral hall in it.
The main hall was built in 724, 1295 years ago. The existing building was rebuilt in 1801 by Kuroda Qiqing, ruler of Fukuoka. Important cultural asset.
