  • Anyone who is interested in the Kyushu province came on a trip, it is a place worth visiting. Dazaifu tenmangu if you move while walking trip in a minute walk away.

  • From the Dazaifu tenmangu (shrine) can easily be reached by long escalators with a roof. Tenman-gu shrine treasure Hall and ticket deals at 500 yen. Only the National Museum and exhibit is of course fine buildings such as the spacious entrance and lighting. Worth a look.

  • 這座博物館設計的很舒適,位於美麗的群山之中,建了這棟美麗的建築,這樣子硬體以世界各地的標準來說,都是一流的。更別說外頭還有一間美食餐廳,溫暖旅客的胃。然而,我覺得可惜的是裡面的館藏,並沒有到世界一流的等級,也沒有到日本一流的等級,只能說是local的館藏。所以我不是很明白這樣設計的用意,為什麼不在館藏上做的更卓越?

  • This is a must see Japanese museum. The quality of the art collection is first rate and includes art from a number of Asian countries. The museum itself is stunning and easy to visit. You can easily spend three hours enjoying the beautiful collections exhibited. The museum also has special exhibits but reservations are usually necessary and may still involve quite a lengthy waiting in line.
  • Wonderful setting for this amazing museum with plenty of English including an audio guide. Great train trip from Fukuoka as well.
  • The museum has an elegant and modern building that exemplifies the merger between history and art. A must see for every fan of history!
  • A very modern design museum built on the hill. The exhibition is mainly about how Japanese is evolved and how the culture is influenced by China and West Asia. They have English guide so it is a good place to visit if you are in 太宰府
  • A very nice and modern museum. It's accessible to everyone because the museum provides many languages. Renting an audio guide is free.
