I'm Yohei, the chief priest of a time-honored shinto shrine in Kitakyushu City. I used to be a businessman working in the pharmaceutical industry, but 10 years ago, I thought "You only live once, why not try it?" and decided to jump into the wonderful world of Shinto. There's still a lot for me to learn, but thanks to my secular background, I can share intriguing facts and answer questions from visitors' point of view. As Kitakyushu has become a port of call for big cruise ships, I'm beyond excited to show many overseas guests beautiful Japanese culture and tradition through visiting our shrine.

Where you'll be

Located right under Wakato Bridge in Kitakyushu City, Fukuoka, then the longest bridge in the East, this shrine boasts more than 1000 years of history. Legend has it that the shrine was built around 1800 years ago to enshrine a glowing stone found at the bottom of the sea by Takeuchinosukune, a faithful servant of Emperor Chuai and Empress Jingu. The divine stone is said to be still sitting in the innermost of the shrine's main building.
