We walked from Hakata JR Station to Kushiset Shrine, and then went to Tochoji Temple. When I was approaching Tochangji Temple, I saw the golden spire from a distance, guiding us far away. Only when I walked to the front did I realize that there was such a beautiful five-story tower under the golden spire! Not only is it spectacular, but it also looks great when taken!
1️⃣Later, I checked it and found that Tocho-ji Temple was originally founded by Kobo, who returned from the Tang Dynasty. Later, the second generation lord of the Fukuoka Domain, Tadayuki Kuroda, moved it from the seaside that was originally built to the present place. This temple was later listed as a historical monument by Fukuoka City.
