Do you want to enjoy Hakata at night while being able to learn about Japanese culture?
Then you should not miss out on “Hakata Light Up”. By participating in this event, which takes place every year in November, you can enter the temples in Hakata and Gion at night to watch beautiful illuminations. Some temples will also display special pictures and figures or even let you enter places that are usually inaccessible to the public.
As there are ten temples to visit, you might want to buy a whole booklet with tickets for each temple. The ticket book costs about 800 yen.
It is a nice way to learn more about Buddhism and to get to know your local temples!
