A place to find information about a variety of materials on Dazaifu and tourism.
On the first floor there is a diorama exhibit, tourist information, and sellers of handmade works. The diorama is a three-dimensional model of Dazaifu, and shows the locations of attractions and historic sites. Visitors can ask questions about Dazaifu’s history to guides. Here you will want to touch the history of Dazaifu.
In the workshops on the second floor visitors can decorate wooden Japanese bullfinch and toast rice cakes (reservations necessary). When Tenmangu Shrine was built, it is said that an army of bees rushed in and a flock of Japanese bullfinch came flying in and killed the bees. Since then, the Japanese bullfinch has been thought of as a messenger of God. The wooden sculpture is made by carving a piece of wood into the shape of a Japanese bullfinch which is perched in a tree.
Mahoroba hall is on the third floor where public performances and a variety of lectures about Dazaifu culture are held.
