Terumo Jinja (光雲神社)

福岡パワースポット案内
LANGUAGES AVAILABLE: 日本語 한국어 簡体中文 繁體中文 ภาษาไทย Bahasa Indonesia

"光雲 (Terumo / Kouun)" - A blessed word implying "Shining Clouds" and "Good Fortune"!

Terumo Jinja
Nishi Park is located on a small hill protruding from the Port of Hakata. Do you know there is a shrine called "Terumo Jinja"? It was built to worship a founder of the Fukuoka Clan, Kuroda Kanbe, and the first lord Kuroda Nagamasa. Its name is given by letters taken from each of their posthumous name. "Terumo (光雲)" is also pronounced as "Kouun (幸運)" which means good fortune, literally it is believed that this is a shrine that brings good fortune. In the shrine you will find a sculpture with the figure of Nagamasa's favourite peach-shaped kabuto helmet with crest of large horns, a Bori Tahee (one of the Fukuoka Clan warriors) statue, and a big Muku Tree, all of these reflect different stories of bringing good fortune to the people. Another thing not to be missed is the offering box placed in the worship hall, because when you throw coins in you will hear the sound as a crane calling! So why not make a visit to spiritual Terumo Jinja to get some good fortune!
