Dedicated to the Shinto god of learning Tenjin, Dazaifu Tenman-gu 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.

Dazaifu Tenman-gu Reviews
桃山時代に再建された太宰府天満宮の本殿はこの地でなくなった菅原道真公の墓所の上に建っており、学問の神様・菅原道真公を祀っています。 大宰府が新元号「令和」ゆかりの地として脚光を浴びていますので、3年振りに参拝しました。当時と比べると「令和」を祝う彩でより一層華やかになった感じがします。 また、訪れた日は神幸式大祭・例祭が催されていて、厳かな儀式を拝見できて良かったです。 more »The main shrine of Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine, which was rebuilt in the Momoyama period, stands on the tomb of Michizan Sugawara, who is no longer here, and enshrines the god of learning, Michizan Sugawara. Since Dazaifu is in the limelight as a place related to the new era name "Reiwa Ayu", I visited the shrine for the first time in three years. Compared to those days, it feels even more glamorous with the color celebrating "Reiwa". Also, on the day i visited, there was a Shinto ceremony festival and an annual festival, and it was good to see the solemn ceremony.
朝一番に行きました。 まだ少し閑散としていて歩きやすくてよかったです。 帰りには参道のお店も開き始めて梅が枝餅も食べました。 また行きたいですね。 more »I went first thing in the morning. It was still a little quiet and easy to walk. On the way back, we started to open a shop on the approach to the shrine, and we ate ume mochi. I want to go again.
Good place to visit. Not far from city. Just take express train to the last stop and walk pass the shopping street. Please visit Starbucks coffee there. It’s quite unique interior design compare to other branches.
Easy to get there. Not far from Fukuoka. There are many souvenir shops in front of the shrine so you can try traditional tastes of Japanese food.
