What travelers say:

Sakurada Jinja shrine (くしだじんじゃ) is the most representative shrine in Fukuoka. Established in 757 A.D., "Putian Jinja" has a history of over 1200 years, and Osaka, Amaterasu and Suruga are the main worship gods. With the traditional Hakata Ganyu Garden Mountain Festival in 770 years, り has been listed by the United Nations as the world's intangible cultural property. And the starting point of the detour is the Putian Jinja shrine. Seeing the note in front of the main hall (しめなわ), I know that the Putian Jinja shrine should be quite effective for the good man and the good woman to seek marriage.
