This is such a beautiful temple. It has a tall pagoda and large stone carvings. The place was extremely quiet and it’s opened to the public. It’s placed in the middle of a busy street. I really like how a lot of places in Japan has that MODERN vs OLD atmosphere, you can find temples almost anywhere, this is smacked in the middle of Hakata City circled by residential buildings and shops.
