Dedicated to the Shinto god of learning Tenjin, Dazaifu Tenman-gu traces its origins back to the year 905. Wander the complex and admire the ornate woodcarvings, red-gold accents, and classic swooping rooftops that adorn the buildings, particularly the lavishly decorated main shrine. Stroll through the shrine's surrounding gardens, featuring ponds, bridges, and other smaller structures surrounded by Asian plum trees. Don't miss a chance to try a local type of grilled bean cake, known as umegae mochi--you'll find it sold by many vendors along the main trail to the shrine.

Dazaifu Tenman-gu Reviews
2月と6月に行きました。子どもの受験の祈願と御礼参りです。2回とも沢山の人で賑わっていました。参道に梅が枝餅やソフトクリームやスタバ、お土産屋さんなど沢山のお店があります。 more »I went to February and June. It is a prayer and a thank you for the examination of the child. It was crowded with a lot of people both times. There are many shops such as ume edcakes, soft ice cream, starbucks, and souvenir shops on the approach.
出張の空き時間で訪問。神々しい雰囲気の中ひたすら歩きます。そしていよいよ本殿へ。子供の成績向上祈願と合わせて御守りを買いました。 more »Visit in your spare time on a business trip. I walk in a divine atmosphere. And finally to the main shrine. I bought a talisman in conjunction with the child's wish to improve his grades.
Good place to visit. Not far from city. Just take express train to the last stop and walk pass the shopping street. Please visit Starbucks coffee there. It’s quite unique interior design compare to other branches.
Easy to get there. Not far from Fukuoka. There are many souvenir shops in front of the shrine so you can try traditional tastes of Japanese food.
