16th Century Shrine, Popular With Students Praying For Acdemci Success; Colorful Flea-market.
Generally a tourist spot; it is present in virtually all brochures covering Fukuoka. The place itself is a shrine to a Japanese deity of learning. Those who want to have a taste of Japanese spirituality may find this a good example of it. The grounds of the shrine itself are beautiful, with Chinese-inspired Bridges and gardens; however, as we visited in winter, there wasn't much foliage to make the scenery especially appealing. Perhaps it would be better to visit the area in times other than winter. Crowds are often present, but they are generally bearable.

It's around the back of Temangu Shrine. It's worth going up to see this especially if you are yearning for a little exercise. The place is quiet and devoid of tour groups. The walk up also rewards you with the best display of Sakura if you are lucky.

Tempaizan Historical Natur Park is just few minutes’ walk from Futukaichi hot Springs. This park is also the starting point of Tempaizan hiking. Nearby there is also Muzoji temple, which is the oldest temple in Kyushu.

Kyushu National Museum is one of the 4 National Museums in Japan (other National Museums are in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Nara). The permanent collection of the museum is consisted of antiquities of Kyushu and some Asian countries. There is a special exhibition, too. But, the exhibition seems to be small compared with the other National Museums. The massive architecture design of the building and the long escalator that leads to the entrance of the museum are really impressive. It takes only 5 min walk from the Dazaifu Tenmangu and it's nice to combine these two attractions in the same day.

I only wish the monk allowed photos of the beautiful dry landscape garden. There is a small wooden deck you can sit to look at the garden and engage in some meditation. To avoid the crowds, come around 30 minutes before closing time.

Buzoji temple is the oldest temple in Kyushu. It is small, quiet and very pleasant temple. Japanese wisteria of this temple is famous.

This is the approach to the Dazaifu Tenmangū, one of the three important shrines dedicated to the deified scholar, poet and politician Sugawara no Michizane (845-903). There are still a couple of old shops selling Kurume kasuri (traditional fabric), items for calligraphy, umegamochi (small cakes filled with a kind of bean paste), folk art etc. But unfortunately the rise of tourism is slowly killing the traditional character of this street. Many stores have adapted to their new mostly interactional customers. If you are able to do so, come very early in the morning.

The park is beautiful, but the gov't remains are not an attraction...there are just a few foundation stones. Go for the park though!
