Dazaifu Temman-gu

16th Century Shrine, Popular With Students Praying For Acdemci Success; Colorful Flea-market.

Reviewed By Alexander G - Singapore, Singapore

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.

Mt. Tenpaizan

Reviewed By arattm - 福岡

二日市温泉街を抜けて、県道を横断して武蔵寺に行き、寺の横から約30分で頂上に到着します。頂上までの正面道はよく整備されていて、危険個所はありません。ほかに「天神さんの径」「シャクナゲ谷コース」がありますが、少しハードになります。頂上からは遠く志賀島、油山、放漫山系まで見えます。
低山にしては見事な景色です。また昔、菅原道真が無実を訴えて毎日この山に登ったという伝えがあります。

Kamado Shrine

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

Reviewed By mabei0123 - Tsukuba, Japan

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.

Dazaifu Monzen Machi

Reviewed By japanfan2016 - Fukuoka, Japan

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.

日本全国にイオンモールはありますが、やはり行きつけのイオンモールが落ち着きますね、何がどこにあるか把握できてると効率的にお買い物できるし。いちりゅうなどのケーキやさんも入っていてちょっとした御礼などにも使ってます。
