Dazaifu Temmangu Shrine, Dazaifu

(4.2/5 based on 1,300+ 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.
