Popular Attractions in Omuta

Kumamoto Castle
4.6/5
444 Reviews
Country/City
Kumamoto Castle is located in the city of Kumamoto which, along with Osaka Castle and Nagoya Castle is regarded as one of Japan's three major castles. Kumamoto is often referred to as the "Ginkgo Castle" owing to the large number of ginkgo trees, whose fruit historically served as military supplies. The castle structure itself is magnificent and looks, from a distance, almost like an elegant crane taking flight. Tall, stone walls surround all four corners of Kumamoto, making it one of Japan's more heavily guarded fortresses.

Dazaifu Tenmangū Shrine
4.5/5
495 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.
