Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine

Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine

The shrine is dedicated to Sugawara Michizane who was later deified as the god of literature and calligraphy. As such, most visitors are students praying for success in exams and academics. Because of Michizane’s affection for plum blossoms, 6000 plum trees of 200 varieties are planted on the site and start to bloom around the shrine beautifully from early February to mid March. Be sure to visit the Honden, Main Shrine, built in 1591 and is a fine example of Momoyama-style architecture.
