Beautiful Shrine!
Oct 2019
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!!

Beautiful
Feb 2020
It is a bit confuse on the trip because i had a JR pass with me hence i would op for the cheapest journey with my pass, ended up i dropped off at the wrong station and had to walk a distance to it but lucky when i reach, most shops are still close hence i make my way into the shrine first. Oh gosh, it was so beautiful with the early bloom of sakuras, this increase my mood and the place was so cooling and beautiful to walk. Always head over there early so when you are done with the shrine walking out, everyone is just heading in.

Beautiful Grounds With Huge Trees!
Dec 2019
We took a cab from Hakata Station to get to this temple, but I am sure there are better ways if you have more time. This is a beautiful place to see and to walk around the grounds. With its many bridges and monsterous trees, there are great photo opportunities. We were there just before New Year's and there were lots of families out and about. We walked back to the entrance of an amusement park that looked to be wonderful for children. Be sure to kiss the cow statue for good luck as many people were doing that and taking photos. Great place to go. We ttok the bullet train from Osaka and it was a good day trip. Nice area to walk around and explore and very interesting as well.

Free Entrance and Peaceful Area
Dec 2019
Came to Dazaifu Temmangu Shrine on Wednesday, December 25. We were staying at The Lively in Fukuoka and walked 10 minutes to the Tenjin Station to take the Nishitetsu Tenjin Omuta Line to Nishitetsu Futsukaichi Station for a change to the Nishitetsu Dazaifu Line and got off at Dazaifu Station and then a 5 minute walk to Dazaifu Shrine. We got a bit confused during the transfer at Futsukaichi Station so just be careful when transferring at that station. The entire journey takes around 40 minutes and the fare for the train was 410 yen one way per person. We got there right before 9 am and it was nice and calm and quiet.

It won't take you long to walk around Dazaifu Shrine - around an hour. However, there are a few photogenic spots and entrance is entirely free. Also, on your way into the Shrine, make sure you try the red bean treats that are sold along the main street. We tried them at both Yasutake and Kasanoya and they were both very good.

It's a good and easy trip if you are staying in Fukuoka.

Not a must but you should
Dec 2019
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.

Pray for academic success
Nov 2019
It's a shrine known for academic success and frequented by students praying for it. Was quite crowded when I visited and along the street leading to the shrine , all of the shops was selling the same type of dessert.

Not necessarily a must do
Nov 2019 • Couples
It is easily accessible from Hakata or Tenjin. There is a tourist pack (¥960) with return train tickets from Tenjin to Dazaifu, a number of discount coupons and tickets to redeem 2 umegae mochi. The shrine itself is filled with students on the day of our visit. The grounds is not very big so if you don’t go to Kyushu National museum, then you can generally cover everything in an hour. The obligatory gift shops line the street leading to the shrine. It is worth a visit if you have time on your hand.
