Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine (Part .1)...Shrine dedicated to Sugawara Michizane

-Every year around January or February, when the news of plum blossoms arrive, many students for entrance examinations visit Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine (Dazaifu City, Fukuoka Prefecture). This is because the shrine is dedicated to Sugawara no Michizane, known as the god of learning.

-Sugawara Michizane was an elite aristocrat who was blessed with literary talent from an early age and became a "Doctor of Letters" and later became the Minister of the Right.

-In 901, he was transferred from the capital to Dazaifu in Kyushu, where he tragically passed away two years later. The following is an introduction to Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine, which is associated with Sugawara no Michizane, a man of light and shadow. /
