What people are saying:

Fukuoka must punch card|Find a rare and quiet place in the busy city! Most of Fukuoka's attractions are outside the city, only Kushiset Shrine and Tocho-ji Temple are in the city, and they are very close to Hakata JR Station and can be reached on foot. It's really convenient, and it's also rare in the bustling Fukuoka. 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! Recommended reason 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. 2️⃣In addition to this construction history, another reason why Tochoji is famous is the colorful five-story pagoda, and the largest sitting Buddha in Japan enshrined on the second floor of the pagoda. It was designated as a National Treasure in the Meiji Era, which shows that there are treasures everywhere in this temple! 3️⃣As a temple, Tochoji Temple not only enshrines treasures in the tower, but also provides a quiet spiritual sustenance in the noisy and busy city for everyone to free themselves in their leisure time. It is a rare quiet place in the busy city of Fukuoka ! Don’t miss it when you travel to Fukuoka! ✅The following is some information about Tochoji Temple: Transportation Get off at the subway [Gion Station] and walk for about 1 minute, or walk within 1 km from Hakata JR Station. Opening hours 09:00-17:00 (January 1st-December 31st Monday-Sunday) Best time to play The scenery is naturally the most beautiful during the cherry blossom season! With the cherry blossoms, it will be more artistic here. Tickets no
