  • Came to Dazaifu tenmangu shrine. Climb the long escalators and large glass museum building. Kyushu and Asia-related themes, like once upon a time was up. Please feel free to ask the curator is very much, do not know.

  • Structure cannot be expressed well changed form a huge building with escalators, up on the top floor is overlooking all the way down, I was surprised. During the exhibition to see the calm and quite full. I think deals 430 Yen in this.

  • Because no special exhibits was empty. You could feel isolated from the crowds of the Dazaifu tenmangu shrine, and see the exhibition.

  • 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.
