A lovely beautiful city / temple / shrine with Zen atmosphere. Some ladies dress in Kimono / Japanese national costume.
This shrine is very popular among local visitors and tourists.
On the way back, highly recommended to visit one of the most famous Starbucks, won the Top 100 Design Building in the country!!

Decided to brave the Japanese train system for this one and it was easy. 2 changes 3 trains and you are dropped right outside. Very spiritual place, excellent museum and a large flea market to boot. Good food and coffee and typical Japanese treats. A good 4/5 hours out

The shrine is about 5min from Dazaifu train station. The grounds are vast and there's also a museum located within. The bridge which went over the heart-shaped pond was impressive. It was incredibly crowded when I visited and it was difficult to fully take in the shrine's atmosphere.

Less than 1 hour from Hakata Bus terminal, but recommend you be there a bit earlier or you need to stand during trip.
At Dazaifu Tenmangu, you can feel Japanese culture.
You can enjoy Umegamochi, rice cake with anko paste, this is nice. After visit Honden and pray, you can walk to Tenkai Inari shrine. There is cave for pray, very small place but it’s fun.
You enjoy Trio gate.

One of the must-visit shrine in Kyushu. When we were there, there was a lot of tourists. Many great photo spots around the shrine. There was a bull statue within the compound as well.

I understand that the deity enshrined here was a deity that’s dedicated to learning. There was the reason that many Japanese who wanted a good examination scoring will visit this shrine for prayers.

It's kinda far away from stuff, but if you rent a car or are adventurous head over to Dazaifu Temmangu temple. It was a nice experience. I only stayed maybe an hour or less. Didn't walk the entire grounds but saw what i wanted to see.

Nice temple try to make the trip. I am not a Buddhist or Shinto whatever is practised here but it's still nice to see. You can see Priestesses walking around and priests. They are probably just hires but that's ok still.

This shrine is sacred for eduction and study. Thus, for new year time is good for asking to self development.

The walking street is full of shops and restaurants. Plus, good for photo taking

Very convenient to visit by train

Major attraction when visiting Fukuoka.
It is a big area with a bit of climbing up the hill, beyond the garden and the major shrine at the base where most of the crowds are.

if you are in Fukuoka and have an afternoon free, take the subway train to Dazaifu, the Nishitetsu Tenjin Omuta line, half an hour. The shrine area is just 5 minutes walk from the station, the main street leads you there. The shrine and the temples, the buildings and also all the plum trees and the very old camphor trees, (1500 years), are beautiful and impressive. It is said that there are about 6000 plum trees in the area, Sugawara Michizane's favourite tree.

Be aware that this an active place of worship, not a museum. As a foreigner, walk with cautiousness and respect. For example do not have your picknick outside the little shrine with teddy bears and dolls, dedicated to the memory of dead children.

There are no park areas for picknicks, but there are benches and quiet, calm spots, also restaurants and places that sell drinks and food inside the area. Some of the gardens are charming.

The main street leading to the shrine area have many shops, tourist orientated of course, but I did find some things there which I did not find in for example Tenjin, some beautiful cheramics, t-shirts with kanji signs etc. The famous umegaimochi, a plum filled sweet rice ball is cooked everywhere, most people like these, but I was more happy with a cold beer and some cold noodles and tempura, but that is my taste... Even in full tourist season Dazaifu is calm and relaxed, there are not many places where even the souvenir shops are cool and have a certain dignity, I liked it very much.

Near is the Kyushu National Museum.
