I was walking through Dazaifu when I found a “time machine” very close to the Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine. I was curious and I decided to use it. Now I know it teleports you from this city of ancient culture to a new and modern landscape dominated by the presence of a magnificent glass building embedded into the forest—The Kyushu National Museum. This unique museum focusing on the history of exchange between Japan and other parts of Asia is the country’s fourth national museum. As a museum from which Japan’s cultural development may be interpreted from the perspective of Asia’s history, exhibitions at the museum cover the cultural history of Japan from the Old Stone Age to the late 19th century.
