Dazaifu makes a good day trip from Fukuoka. There are many shrines in the area and souvenir shops and restaurants lining the street leading to Tenman-gu. I recommend not visiting on Mondays, as the museum and Treasure Hall were closed. Easiest way to get there...More

Well worth the visit for its atmosphere and for walking around among the numerous Japanese families. We were there on a Sunday, and many of the ladies and children were wearing their elegant traditional costumes.

Around an hour+ bus ride from Fukuoka Hakkata bus terminal, quaint area, main attraction is the temple, with nice garden/ponds, also have sakura (cherry blossoms) in spring. The temple is famous for "passing" exams etc. There is a museum nearby and a small shopping street.

Part of an easy train trip from Fukuoka. Lovely to enjoy the beautiful grounds and temple. Lots of different areas to enjoy. Cafes to sit with drinks and refreshments. Easy walk on to the Museum. Enjoyed an impromptu drumming performance in the grounds.

The grounds are beautifully maintained, both landscaping wise as well as the details on the buildings. It was great to just wander around. Lots of spaces for reflection and the statues are well loved (the cows noses were repetitively shown love). I thought it odd...More

If you love shrines, this is a lovely area with a beautiful, large shrine to the god of education/knowledge and calligraphy. (Michizane Sugawaro, god of literature or calligraphy). During exam times, it's crowded with students. As an educator, I was happy to visit. I was...More

Personally I think the place is too much over-rated by the public. After all the hassle in getting there from Hakata, we were a bit disappointed to have found that it was nothing but a large enclosure with a few structures of worship here and...More
