Bronze horse at Kushida Shrine, Fukuoka 櫛田神社 福岡

Bronze horse at Kushida Shrine, Fukuoka 櫛田神社 福岡
The "mon" on the side of the horse (in triplicate) is that of Toyotomi Hideyoshi and his relatives. It's also the mon of the Prime Minister but since the shrine was founded in 757 CE I think it must have been a gift from or for the Toyotomi clan.
