Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine is located in Fukuoka Prefecture. It is one of the most famous attractions in Fukuoka for tourists and locals alike. The shrine is dedicated to Michizane Sugawara who is closely linked with Tenjin, the Shinto deity of literature. This is the reason why many Japanese students visit this shrine during the year to pray for success with their education. The Dazaifu museum is also in the same area, which is worth stopping by.
