Kitano Tenmangu Shrine

Tenjin-san.

The shrine is dedicated to Sugawara Michizane, known as the god of learning. This shrine is the head shrine of all Tenmangu shrines in Japan. The main shrine and worship hall, both national treasures, are representative of Momoyama culture. Remnants of the shrine’s original moat can be seen in the shrine grounds, which have been designated as a historic site. The 25th of every month is the “Tenjin-san” fair. The shrine is also famous for its plum blossoms and autumn leaves.
