The Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine is located in the eponymous city of Dazaifu on the main island of Kyushu. Shinto Tenmangu shrines are all dedicated to the scholar Sugawara no Michizane who was elevated to the deity of Tenjin. The Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine is one of the three most important of its kind in Japan.


The shrine's honden (main hall) will undergo major renovation from May 2023 to 2026. During this period, the shrine will set up a unique temporary hall in front of the honden. This one-story building will feature trees and grass on the roof to harmonize with the encircling environment.
