3   Yanagawa sightseeing

lunch: Eel dish Yanagawa is a city located in Fukuoka

Prefecture, the city has an estimated population of

934.55 persons per km². A view of Yanagawa city.

Yanagawa is popular with Japanese tourists because

of its 470 km of wide canals. Yanagawa riverboats,

called "donkobune", are used to take tourists around

the city. In 1987 a video documentary was created

by Studio Ghibli about these canals and their restoration.

The Story of Yanagawa's Canals is widely available and

includes English subtitles. Yanagawa was originally

constructed in the mid-16th century by the Kamachi clan.

Before then, it had been a traditional farming village,

with the canals used for irrigation; Tanaka Yoshimasa

(Japanese:1548 - 1609) ordered the canals to be maintained

and built a castle in Yanagawa, which is still maintained today.

The modern city was founded on April 1, 1952.

Yanagawa is the birthplace of Kitahara Hakushu, a Meiji era

poet and writer of children's songs. An annual three-day

festival is held every November in Yanagawa complete

with poetry readings, fireworks, music, and a great number

of evening boat rides. During this festival, most activities begin

from Shimohyaku Town and center at the Hiyoshi Shinto Shrine.

In addition, Hakushu's birth house is located in Yanagawa and

open to the public for tours. The Yanagawa Municipal Folk

Museum is mainly dedicated to preservation of Hakushu-sensei's

works and memorabilia. During the months of March and April,

Yanagawa also plays host to a number of festivals,

most notably Hinamatsuri or Girls' Festival on March 3.

A great number of finely crafted Heian era styled dolls

are placed on display in a number of private homes,

shops, and businesses throughout the city. During this time,

a number of local citizens actually open up their homes

to the public, allowing people to come and see their elaborate

decorations and displays.

Lunch: Unagi no Seiro-mushi (eel steamed in a basket)

This dish has been loved as one

of the specialties of Yanagawa. More than ten restaurants

compete with each other over their own skills of grilling,

steaming, and seasoning methods.

Supper:Pork fried on a skewer

6  Dazaifu sightseeing

Dazaifu was established in the late 7th century and served

as the administrative center of the entire island of Kyushu

for over 500 years. The city was built slightly inland from

Hakata, whose port was one of the main points of interaction

between Japan and mainland Asia.

Although the imperial court ruled the country from the

Kansai Region, Dazaifu was pivotal for Japan's diplomatic

relations and organizing the country's defenses. Nowadays,

Dazaifu is a small, quiet city on the outskirts of the large city

of Fukuoka, from which it is perfect for a day trip.

There are a number of temples and shrines, the most famous

of which is the Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine, as well as sites

related to Dazaifu's role as the region's administrative center,

such as the Government Office Ruins. In 2005 the massive

Kyushu National Museum was opened to the public,

making a great new addition to the city's attractions.

about 「Dazaifu History]
Dazaifu Tenmangu is a shrine built over the grave of Michizane Sugawara venerated by the Japanese throughout the country as the Tenman-Tenjin (the deified spirit of Michizane), or the God of literature or calligraphy.
Michizane, who had been a high-ranking government officer, was demoted because of the slander and political chicanery of his rivals, the Fujiwara clan.

He endured a life of extreme hardship and misery in exile at Dazaifu, yet preserved his character continuing his scholarly studies and never developing the hatred for those who had exiled him. He died in 903 at the age of 59.
His funeral procession was a melancholy occasion, attended only by his faithful follower Yasuyuki Umasake and a few neighbors. The coffin was carried on a cow carriage led by Yasuyuki, according to the legend the ox suddenly came to a halt and refused to budge despite threats and entreaties. The burial therefore took place on the spot, and this became the site of the Tenmangu's main shrine visited today by so many admirers.
Michizane is celebrated as a man, pure in heart and deed, and after his death he was deified and worshipped as a God.

There are approximately 6,000 plum trees of 197 varieties in the vicinity of Tenmangu, reflecting Michizane's lifelong affection and regard for the trees and their blossoms.
Perhaps the most famous is the one to the right of HONDEN (main shrine). Known as TOBIUME (the flying plum tree), legend has it that after Michizane left Kyoto for a life in exile, this particular tree yearned so much for him that, uprooting himself, it flew to reunite with him in Dazaifu.
In early January each year, TOBIUME is always the very first tree to blossom, and the thousands of other trees quickly follow, producing an incredible sight when the Tenmangu is covered in small pink and white flowers.
