Kushida Shrine, where the universal Shinto deity is revered, is also known as the place of dedication of the Hakata Gion Yamakasa (a festival in Hakata during summer). The festival culmination is on July 15 at 4:59 in the morning, when men start running as they carry the Yamakasa. The men's enthusiasm wraps around the temple grounds. In addition, a big Otafuku-men (moon-shaped face of a woman) is installed here during the Setsubun (the traditional end of winter), and the custom of scattering beans also takes place here. This is one of the shrines which shrine goers never stop visiting.
