Hofu Tenmangu Shrine

Hofutenmangu shrine

 

 

 

 

 

 

This shrine is dedicated to Michizane Sugawara, the god of academic scholarship. Together with Kitano Shrine in Kyoto and Dazaifu Shrine in Fukuoka, this is one of the three great Tenjin Shrines of Japan. Legend says that Michizane stopped at Hofu while traveling to Kyushu, and so loved the place that he promised to return here as a spirit after his death. It is said that this was the first Tenman-gu shrine in Japan, constructed in 904, the year after Michizane’s death in Kyushu.

Mori Garden

Mori Garden

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was the residence of the Mori family, lords of the old Hagi Domain. It was completed in 1916 and is now a National Site of Scenic Beauty. The residence is an Edo-era palace, with a large structure that required all the architectural skills of the day to construct. It incorporates luxurious elegance that would be impossible to make today, including doors made from single boards of Yaku cedar. The garden is in a circuit style, with many and varied cherry trees and wisteria blooming in the spring and the splendor of maple leaves in the autumn. Visitors can enjoy rich and colorful scenery that changes with each season.
