We went to Dazaifu the other day.It was the fourth time I went there.It is said that the deity of Sugawara Michizane, a wise scholar, is enshrined at Dazaifu tenmangu.Many students flock there during exam season to pray to his spirit for academic success.Many students also go on excursions here during this season. Dazaifu tenmangu is located near the Kyushu National Museum, a small amusement park, and the hot springs of Futsukaichi.
Here is the main hall.

The most famous umegayamochi shop is “Kasanoya.” It always has a long line. Try eating one of these baked goodies! !
