Dazaifu Temmangu Shrine, Dazaifu
(4.1/5 based on 1,200+ 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.

  • In the time since, visited. Approach is both lively and just walking. Famous plum of branches than to eat, and this also for shopping, such as the famous plum seaweed is fun. Walk from Tenjin-Minami trains at Hakata if 4 hours if you have time, or non-stop trains, so feel free to go! Young and old can enjoy it ^ _ ^ go time now because there are so many plum.

  • Tourist buses stop in the parking lot, but many corporate customers, such as Korea, China, stand out at the shrine. Tenmangu shrine itself is not too big, and Plum Garden in the back, to the plum season looks good.

  • Japan language than Chinese, Korea, well I heard. It is felt that many foreign tourists. From Dazaifu Station to Dazaifu tenmangu shrine has a lot of shops, ate snow and strawberry Daifuku, both were very good.
