Dazaifu Tenmangu

The Dazaifu Tenman-gū is a well-known shrine dedicated to the spirit of Sugawara Michizane, a scholar and politician of the Heian Period. Michizane is associated with Tenjin, a Shinto deity of education.

That’s why you’ll see students from all across Japan come to the Dazaifu Tenman-gū to pray for success in examinations. It definitely gives a sense of comfort to its visitors.

If you know someone who has an examination coming up, you can buy a good luck charm from the shrine. It costs about 700 yen and can also ward off bad luck.

The shrine is especially popular with tourists from China and South Korea, but it's spacious enough for you to enjoy it.

To get to the shrine, you can take a bus from Hakata Station. The journey takes less than an hour, so do come and pay a visit!
