We visited on a Tuesday around 11am. It is super crowded with tourists esp. many China tours. I don't think I would want to visit again.

There are lots of shops here, you can buy souvenirs or try the local foods. Just next to the Dazaifu Tenman-gu, if you are planning to visit the shrine, you should not miss this street.
