Dazaifu Temmangu Shrine, Dazaifu
(4.1/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Dedicated to the Shinto god of learning Tenjin, Dazaifu Temmangu Shrine 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. Arrange your visit to Dazaifu Temmangu Shrine and discover more family-friendly attractions in Dazaifu using our Dazaifu vacation route planner.

  • Home coming to Fukuoka, instead of going to Dazaifu Tenman-gu shrine's that in worship. To find the parking lot 1 bitter cold can visit safely. Many foreign tourists, were tossing around the word of various countries. Plum tree of the Empress, there was a solemn atmosphere. There is a kindergarten in the premises. Somehow 微笑mashikatta.

  • 脫下鞋履進入天滿宮,頓時被美得如畫的仙境震懾,那秋葉的紅粉綠搭配的恰到好處,彷彿進入張大千水墨畫中,讓人久久不能忘懷,時間霎那間停格,原來天上人間在此交會---- 
  • Omotesando shopping has not yet opened about 8 percent, parking is also free so I went to the 8 a.m. morning is pray worshippers at least slowly out. We recommend early in the morning because the large number of tourists who came to back slowly if you want to see.
