Dazaifutenmangu is a major shrine for success in the entrance examination. Even on snowy days, the fortune slips with a color of pink plum blossom are beautiful! I felt the many prayers of many students who had tried to get over the hard winter and get happy spring.◎It has an easy access by train and bus. And there's a large parking area.

Dazaifutenmangu is a shrine sacred to a god Tenjin, Michizane Sugawara. When Michizane was degraded to Kyushu, he was compelled to composed a poem toward the plum tree standing at his residence in Kyoto. 'When the east wind blows, please send your fragrance, my plum blossoms, and don't forget spring though I'm not here.' Then a tradition says that the plum tree has flown to Fukuoka to chase him. Now, the legendary 'Flying Plum Tree (Tobi-ume)' is blooming with many white blossoms!

Dazaihu Tenman Gu Shrine is a spiritual power spot many students come from all over japan for success in examinations.

The huge tree said to be 1000 years old and registered as a natural treasure. The age, the size, wonderful!
