There are also many "Umegae Mochi" shops that represent Dazaifu! There is also a shop where you can see how the roasting is done through the glass, so you can't wait to see it. The style of fragrant and chewy dough and plenty of bean paste is the same in all shops, but there are differences in the degree of baking and the sweetness of bean paste, so it seems fun to compare and find your favorite shop. ..

After adding power with Umegae Mochi, head to the long-awaited Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine. Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine enshrines Sugawara no Michizane, who is known as the god of study. It's a mecca for students! When you pass through the torii gate, the first thing you will see is the "Gagyu".
