Story & Recommendation
Huge flea market at Kitano Tenmangu
The 25th of each month is known as a ‘Tenjin san day’. 25th is the birth and death anniversary day of honorable Sugawarano Michizane who is the person to construct the Kitano tenmangu. This event have been continued since 400 years ago and known as a god of the entertainment. Food wagons are packed together from 6am to 6pm, and after the sunset, Main-hall is lighted up and prominent with the light of 350 stone lanterns and 250 lanterns. There is a fantastic atmosphere which is different from the day time. Usually around 50000~60000 people are visiting to Tenjin san, especially January (the first tenjin san of the year), December ( the last tenjin san of the year), February ( the plum festival is held) and June 25th (the honor Fujiwara no michizane birth day) are crowded with about 150000 people.
