1.Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine
 
 Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine is sacred to the memory of Michizane Sugawara,
also known as "the god of learning." In 901 A.D., Michizane was suddenly
demoted from his position as Minister of the Right and sent to work at the
Dazaifu, where he died two years later. Tenmangu Shrine was built on the site
of his grave. The main hall, as it stands today, was constructed in 1591 A.D.
and is registered as an Important Cultural Property. Within the Shrine
precincts are many plum trees, camphor trees, and irises, which provide
natural beauty in every season of the year.Tenmangu's history is recalled by
events such as the New Year's Exorcism Fire Festival (Oni-sube), the Spring
Water Poetry Festival (kyokusui-no-en),and the Annual God-Procession
Festival (Jinko-shiki)which takes place in the Fall.
