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
太宰府天満宮 に行ってきましたが、まるで初詣のような賑わい。そして3年前との大きな違いは、とにかく外国の方が増えたとの印象。七五三の時期もありますが、あまりな和服を召しているのは間違いなくそのような方でした。ダイコクドラッグができて中国語で呼び込みもする様になってましたね。そのような賑わいもさすがの太宰府天満宮と思い帰ってきました。 more »I went to Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine, but it was as lively as a New Year's visit. And the big difference from three years ago is the impression that the number of foreign countries has increased anyway. There was a time of Shichigosan, too, but it was definitely such a person who called a very kimono. It was made of daikoku drug, and it came to call in Chinese, too. Such a lively atmosphere came back thinking that it was Dazaifu Tenmangu as expected.
If u guys come here for koya, yes its worthy visit. This place deserve a credit. A touristy spot. Anyway, i cant find a shirt about dazaifu. Haha not a joke. more »
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.
