See, touch and enjoy Asian culture! "Kyushu National Museum"

Fu who discovered a modern building!

The Kyushu National Museum exhibits an exhibition centered on the history of cultural exchange with various Asian regions. It opened in 2005 as the fourth national museum after Tokyo, Nara and Kyoto. It 's about a 5-minute walk from Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine, so it's a place you'll want to visit together with worship.

The "Cultural Exchange Exhibition Room", which is a regular exhibition, is full of valuable exhibits as far as the eye can see. Some of the collections of more than 1000 items are on display. It is the curator's commitment to change the exhibition little by little every week. It seems that every time you come, you will discover something new.

We also found an area on the 1st floor where you can enjoy it for free! "Ajippa" introduces traditional costumes, daily necessities, toys, musical instruments, etc. of Asian countries.

It's a colorful and exotic area.

It is a popular area where you can not only see, but also actually touch and make sounds, and try on folk costumes. Beautifully decorated items are fascinating just by looking at them ❤ Not only children but also adults will be absorbed in it!


* As of October 2020, the hands-on experience of touching the exhibits as a countermeasure against the new coronavirus infection is closed. Regarding the restart status,official website of Kyushu National MuseumPlease verify

There is also a museum shop next to Ajippa. The passport case recommended by the staff is very convenient to use as a mask case ♪ Also, the handmade "Dogu gum" is colorful and cute! Each one has a different facial expression, so take your favorite child home.

In addition, special exhibitions may be held depending on the time of year. Why don't you stop by when you visit Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine?

The roots of "Kimetsu no Yaiba" and the rumored "Kamado Shrine"

After leaving the Kyushu National Museum, it's time to go to a hot spot. Speaking of manga that is popular with both adults and children, "Kimetsu no Yaiba"! As of the fall of 2020, JR Kyushu is also holding a collaboration campaign, and the wrapping train of Kimetsu no Yaiba is running in Fukuoka as well. There are many "Kimetsu fans" among those who visit Fukuoka Tower^^ I would like all of these fans to visit "Kamado Shrine," which is about a 10-minute bus ride from Dazaifu Station. It's Kamado Shrine!

This shrine has the same name as Tanjiro Kamado, the main character of Kimetsu no Yaiba. It was founded in 673 as "Kimon Seal" in the place that will be the demon gate of the Dazaifu government office. For this reason, the devilish fans talked about "I think there is a connection to the work." Devil fans from all over the country come to worship. Most of the votive tablets have devilish characters ...!

It has been loved by the locals as a god of marriage. Very cute charms are also popular. Fans are encouraged to visit the "Sacred Place".

After worshiping, take a rest at the cafe near the shrine. "Café Si" is a cafe operated by an industrial silicone manufacturer. In the store, we also exhibit and sell the "SiNG" series of daily necessities made of silicone.

The pudding and coffee bowls offered at the cafe are also made of silicone. Not only its design, but also its functionality is outstanding. Silicone is so safe that it can be used as a material for artificial blood vessels, and pudding has heat resistance such as being able to be steamed in a silicone container! The pudding made from "Suyama no Egg", which is popular in Dazaifu City, is rich and is perfect for healing the tiredness of traveling.

To "Sakamoto Hachimangu", which is related to the era "Reiwa"

This is the place related to Reiwa!

The new era "Reiwa" that caused a big boom last year. In fact, it is also a place related to Dazaifu and Reiwa. The preface to the song of Manyoshu, which was the exhibitor of Reiwa, describes the "Umehana no Utage" that was once held in Dazaifu. It is said that the place where this plum blossom feast was held was near Sakamoto Hachiman Shrine, which is near the ruins of the Dazaifu government office.

In the precincts, there is a passage from the Manyoshu, which was the exhibitor of Reiwa. At the nearby Dazaifu Government Office site, there is the "Dazaifu Exhibition Hall", and there is also a reproduction model of the Umehana feast.
