The Hakozaki Shrine is an important shrine of the city of Fukuoka dedicated to the goddess Hachiman. Founded in 923, the shrine has a long history. It was restored after being completely destroyed during the Mongolian invasion of 1274. The shrine can be recognized by the long street which starts in front of the shrine and extends to the sea. Three Torii gates are located on that street: one in front of the shrine itself, one in front of the sea, and the last one is located roughly halfway between the two others.
