Hakozakigu Hojoya, which is one of the three major festivals of Hakata,along with Hakata Dontaku in spring and Hakata Gion Yamakasa in summer is a festival for people to "show appreciation for life itself, warn themselves agains needless killing and express their appreciation for bountiful harvest in autumn."
During the festival period (for 7 days and 7 nights) from September 12th (Wed) to the 18th (Tue), various Shinto rituals and shrine events will be held along the entrance path to the shrine.

Okudari (descent) on Sept.12th and Onobori (ascent) on Sept.14th are going to solemnly carry out with 500 shrine parishioners with a spirit of service.
