Rakusuien is a Japanese garden in the Chisen-Kaiyu style (the footpath runs around the lake). The Japanese tea house and the tea ceremony garden are surrounded by Hakata-style walls and are located in the north side of Sumiyoshi Shrine. This garden was built by Shimokawa Zennemon Chikamasa, a Hakata merchant, as his villa in the Meiji Period, and he enjoyed the tea ceremony there. Now it is decorated with seasonal trees, plants and flowers, and enjoyed by many people as a place to feel the beauty of Japanese art and calmness.

There are now 2129 Sumiyoshi Shrines throughout Japan, but this one, here in Hakata, was the first. Referenced as “Japan’s first Sumiyoshi” and “The Sumiyoshi Headquarters” in ancient books, it has been officially designated as one of the nation’s Important Cultural Properties. Enshrined here is Sumiyoshi-Oogami, the god of luck, ocean voyages, and of sumo. The oldest Noh Theater in Western Japan resides here, and still hosts Noh, and many other live performances.

Architect Jon Jerde’s curvaceous design defines this lively entertainment complex, which provides ample opportunity to enjoy shopping, movies, live theatre, and dining. The canal that winds through the space, and the dynamic water fountain show are worth seeing. Popular Japanese and foreign name brand shops can be found in the East Building.
