Visit a Autumn Leaves Spot Loved by Locals
Dedicated to Tenjin, the god of learning, Kitano Tenmangū is a popular destination for those wishing to pray for success in scholarship and studies. Tenjin was once a man named Sugawara no Michizane who was an accomplished statesmen, poet, and scholar before he fell out of favor and was banished from the capital, dying in obscurity.
