Suikyo Tenmangu is a small shrine near Tenjin, and you might pass by it unnoticed. This shrine is however the birthplace of Tenjin, or better to say Tenjin is named after this shrine. Tenmangu (or Tenjin) is a shrine, which is dedicated to Sugawarano Michizane, a scholar in the Heian Epoch, and there are many Tenmangus throughout Japan.

Bid area with several building with the Shrine. But wat is most special are several kamfer trees. They are very old. 600 to 1000 years. There is the biggest kamfor tree of Japan.

We walked from Tenjin station by some 15 minutes and arrived there, which was very comfort walking in the morning of September. The proximity to residents also revealed how the daily life of Japanese was. The shrine was not big, and spent you 10 minutes, looking at the small fish ponds at the entrance, and some building structure inside. It's... More

We read about this interesting place which is right smack in downtown Tenji. It actually took us a while to finally get there! Indeed well nested amongst the commercial buildings.. Tenmangu are Shinto shrines dedicated to Sugawara no Michizane, the god of learning. We have visited the most famous of these Tenmangu shrines in Dazaifu (where Michizane passed away), as... More

This Japanese review describes my experience. All conversation we had was in Japanese. I wanted to get a stamp/calligraphy for my shuinchou (朱印帳), which is a temple and shrine book. The first day I went there at around 2:30pm, the priest there said the person who writes the stamps went home. Then he said to just go pray. I left.... More

天神アクロス福岡の向い。菅原道真が九州に着いた時に、池に映った姿を見て歌を詠んだという。その故事と共に菅原道真を祀っている。天神の町名の元でもある由緒ある神社。 The name of town ''Tenjin'' is originally name of a noble politician, Michizane Sugawara(845-903). And he has been enshrined for his superior talent. Though the garden of shrine is small nowadays, it is worth pilgrimaging if you want to trip safe.
