- Established: c. 921
- Japanese: 筥崎宮 (hakozaki-guu)
The shrine is approached via a long pathway, with two large stone torii at either end. One, the ichi-no-torii, is considered an Important Cultural Property, and is said to have been erected by Kuroda Nagamasa, lord of Fukuoka han, in 1609.
The shrine compound formerly included a Buddhist temple hall called the Tôrôdô, in front of which Sen no Rikyû and Toyotomi Hideyoshi are said to have often held tea ceremonies during Hideyoshi's 1587 Kyushu Campaign. This hall was later moved to the nearby temple of Ekô-in.
Hakozaki is famous today for the yatai (food stalls) frequently set up just outside of the shrine.
