A clean place: Kokura Hachiman Shrine
to Kokura in Kitakyushu, in addition to the must-go Kokura Castle, you must not miss the Gossip Shrine. It seems that every city has a place called the Yasaka Shrine. After reviewing the information, I found out that there are about 3,000 Yasaka Shrines in Japan! The Yasaka Shrine, which is famous in Kyoto, is the total body of these thousands of shrines.
Unlike the Yasaka Shrine in Kyoto, it is always crowded, and this shrine here is a very clean place. There are not many people who come to visit and worship in addition to a few ritual activities every month. On the third weekend of the 7th month of each year, a grand garden festival is held here, which is worth attending.
Although the area is small, but it is complete, there is a quiet painted horse trail, which is full of people's wish to pray. The shape of the painted horses varies from season to season, and there are now many cherry-shaped painted horses available only during the cherry blossom season.
Here is the order of the worship of science: first, you have to take a sigh of relief, shake the bell after casting the praying coin, and then take a deep sigh, take two hands and put your hands together to make a wish. Hey, then a squat and then squatting, it is the completion of the entire prayer process.
Location: This Yasaka Shrine in Ogura is next to the Ogura Castle. After visiting the Kokura Castle, you can reach the Yasaka Shrine by following the stone steps.
I did not expect this to be a good shopping and fun Kokura Castle h
to say that the distance from Fukuoka is close, and suitable for a day trip, I will be the first to push Kitakyushu. The most worthwhile place in Kitakyushu is the Ogura Castle, especially the season of cherry blossoms, and the 300 cherry blossoms around Ogura Castle, dotted with white guards, are really beautiful.
The size of Ogura Castle itself is not large. I thought there was not much to visit, but when I came, I went into the city to find out. I didn't expect it to be a very fun place!!
City: The city is divided into five floors, each with an exhibition area that can understand history and interact. There is an elevator in the city, so even elders with inconvenient legs and legs can visit.
1: Small theater, you can quickly understand the history of Kokura City through the form of a short film.
2: The small landscape model shows the evolution of the entire Ogura Edo era, even if you can't understand history. There is also an interactive area where you can experience 3D kimono dressing, archery games, and fun activities such as the sedan chair at the time.
3 layer: The swordsman Miyamoto Musashi once pressed the island's original chaos in Kokura town. Here, he can also take a picture with his sword holding a sword, which is suitable for posing a sword.
4: The place where various exhibitions are held, I am going to hold a comic exhibition
5 layer: I can't miss the 5th floor, which is a 360-degree lookout overlooking the surrounding scenery.

Kokura Castle is a castle in Kitakyushu, Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan. It may not be as famous as Osaka Castle, but it is the only castle in Fukuoka Prefecture that has been preserved to this day and has a history of more than 400 years. Although Xiaocang City is not large, the courtyard is exquisite. It is also a good place for locals to take a break. Ascending to the castle tower can be seen, I seem to see the prosperity of Ogura Castle in the Edo period.
Kokura has a shop called "Darum Hall", the owner is a grandmother, and Grandma is very famous in Japan. Entering here is a bit like walking into the late night cafeteria. The fried udon that can be seen all over Japan is actually born in Ogura. It is said that after the war, this restaurant called "DARUMA Hall", because the noodles used for fried noodles have been difficult to stock for a long time, so they used dry udon instead of creating this dish. Seasoning soy sauce is roughly divided into soy sauce and oyster sauce, but the characteristics of Ogura fried udon are on the noodles. The texture of the outer teeth is the advantage of using dry udon. Also, in Ogura, add an omelette to the fried udon called "Scorpio (Skylight)". The so-called "skylight" is the same as the appearance of the moon (egg yolk). If the semi-cooked egg yolk is mixed with udon, it can neutralize the flavor of some fried udon sauce. z
