Museum
Saga Castle is a castle located in Saga City. The ancient name of Saoka City, alias Shencheng, Tortoise City. It was completed in the early days of the Edo period and is the seat of Saga’s hall. It is currently located in the center of Saga City. The Saga chaos in the Meiji era caused most of the buildings in the city to be burned down. Only the Tuen Mun and the sequel have been preserved until now, and it has become the cultural property of the Japanese nation.
Dazaifu Tenmangū Shrine

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.
