Story & Recommendation
Nagaoka Tenmangu Shrine is beautiful every season of the year
Nagaoka Tenmangu Shrine is located close to Hankyu Nagaoka Tenjin Station, and the shrine enshrines the god of learning, Sugawara no Michizane, who was originally a scholar who excelled in both poetry and politics. Because of this, the shrine is often visited by students praying for success in their tests and people applying for jobs who wish to heighten their chances of getting work. The temple is vast and you get to freely walk around it, and there are normally not that many people at the temple. Besides the cherry blossoms and autumn leaves, the temple is also famous for its Kirishima azaleas that bloom in late April. The Kirishima azaleas of this temple are not white or pink like many other azaleas, but the Kirishima azaleas bloom in majestic, vivid reds which are of such beauty that the sight of them will stay with you for the rest of your life.
