Tsunashiki Tenmangu Shrine


It is said that while Sugawara no Michizane was sailing to Dazaifu in 901 AD, he ran into a violent storm but somehow reached the beach in Shiida (northeast Fukuoka). The villagers then made a cutout cushion for him using their fishing nets, where he rested for a while. This site eventually became the home of Tsunashiki Tenmangu Shrine.
The approach facing the Suo Sea is beautifully bordered with 300 to 400-year-old pine trees, and the 1,000 Japanese apricot trees within the shrine grounds put visitors in a relaxed mood.
