Dazaifu / Futsukaichi Restaurant Guide

Dazaifu, located in the central area of Fukuoka Prefecture.Approximately 1300 years ago, Dazaifu became the seat of a large-scale imperial office that ruled all of Kyushu. For 500 years, it served this purpose. Many ruins and places of interest are scattered throughout the city and still convey the mood of olden times. Above all else, Daizaifu Tenman-gu is the most famous place.Believed to be the "god of study," about 7 million people come to pray to Suguwara no Michizane every year.Particularly those who are preparing to take important tests eagerly come to pray for success.There is a huge old tree that is said to be over 1500 years old on the grounds.The large tree is designated as a national natural monument.There are tea houses lining the road up to the shrine and several of these shops sell the thing that Dazaifu is famous for, Umegae Mochi.Umegae Mochi is a roasted rice cake with red bean jam in the middle.In 2005, the Kyushu National Museum was opened next to Daizaifu Tenman-gu.As opposed to the national museums of Tokyo, Kyoto, and Nara, which focus on art, the Kyushu National Museum was established as more of a museum of history.Together with those who come to pray at Daizaifu Tenman-gu, there are a lot of people who come to see the museum.
