  • This is the third oldest tenman-gu in Japan very big and beautiful. There is also a good hike to the top of the mountain in the back.
  • Hōfu, Yamaguchi city. Hofu mitajiri is not very famous city in the political 8/18 of the Tokugawa shogunate fell 7 Sir and the hofu tenmangu shrine called one of the three major Tenjin Japan. Dazaifu of Fukuoka and Kitano Tenman-gu shrine in Kyoto's two remaining from the 'greatness' of this shrine; Hofu station Tenjin mouth down and after a short walk to the shrine. Go up the stairs from there. Become a characteristic of worship atmosphere. Spring cherry and plum are clean, and the vicnity and setsubun is crowded with many people. Various monuments and stelae, some pretty impressive. From Tenjin is of course God of learning, know it by EMA, etc. One of the spots come from the outside to come in.
