It was built in 1195 by the Rinzai-monk Eisai with the financial support of Minamoto no Yoritomo. It is therefore the oldest Zen-temple in Japan still existing today. A sign of Go-Toba-tenno at the temple reads “This is the first Zen-temple in Japan.” However, the first Zen-temple is thought to have been built by Hoon-ji in 1191.

Further cultural artifacts belonging to Shofuku-ji are personal articles of Eisai and Sengai, as well as a bronze bell from the Korean kingdom Goguryeo.

 「Kanda shrine」; The oldest shrine in Fukuoka City. Kushida Shrine is thought to have been founded in the year 757. People visit this shrine to pray for a long healthy life and business prosperity.
