The purpose of this research is to clarify the location characteristics of shrines included in the "Pictorial Record of the Shights in Japan Fukuoka Prefecture" and to acquire basic knowledge about the effective uses of such shrines as local resources. The geographical features and microtopography around the shrines were quantitatively analyzed and the locations were classified into seven categories-cape, seashore plain, inland plain, basin plain, basin highland, mountain periphery, and mountaintop. By analyzing descriptions of local landscapes in the pictorial record, the authors also clarified that shrines located at capes and on mountaintops are appreciated for their views, and that based on these location characteristics, locations commanding a view of the sea can be positioned as local resources.
