Dazaifu Tenman-gū is a Shinto shrine located in the same name city of Dazaifu. It is reasonably easy to get here. You take a Nishitetsu train in Tenjin (Fukuoka) with a transfer at Futsukaichi to get to Dazaifu Station. After exiting the station, walk through the main street to get to the shrine which is to your left at the end of the road.

The shrine is beautiful and well taken care of. Though when I actually got here, I was a bit disappointed in its quaintness. It was not much different from any of the shrines that I have visited before. If you have visited Kyoto, then a visit here may seem like retread. Though I will say that I did not encounter any shrines comparable to this one in Kyushu, so it may be worth a visit for that reason.

I think visiting Dazaifu will depend on your interest in visiting a Shinto shrine and willingness to travel off the beaten path. Dazaifu does make for a decent few hours/half day excursion.

雨が降っていたのは残念だけど、立派で荘厳な感じがします。
