Covered by 8,000 one-way mirrors, the tower is designed to be a triangular pillar that shines at both day and night. There is no better nighttime view in Fukuoka and the building's 360-degree, floor-to-ceiling windows make the bright lights of this seaside town more impressive than ever.

Dazaifu Tenmangū Shrine
4.5/5
494 Reviews
Temple
The Dazaifu Tenmangū Shrine is located in Fukuoka Prefecture's Dazaifu City. This shrine was built around the grave of Sugawara no Michizane. Together with Kyoto's Kitano Tenmangū Shrine, it is the main site of Japanese Tenjin worship. Sugawara was an influential university student during Japan's Heian period. As a result, many of the people who come here to pay homage are students. When a visitor first comes to the Tenmangū Shrine, the first thing he or she notices is a bronze statue of the Heavenly Ox. Prior to his death, Sugawara no Michizane—who was born in the year of the cow—said that he must be transported to his final resting place by a cow or ox. Wherever the cow stopped, that was the place he was to be buried. Many years later, the bronze cow was built in his memory.
