Michizane was especially fond of ume (Asian plum) trees, and there are as many as 6000 of them on the grounds of Dazaifu Tenman-gū. One particular tree, the Tobiume “flying plum tree”, stands to the right of the honden main shrine hall – legend has it that Michizane yearned so much for this tree that it uprooted itself from Kyoto and flew to Dazaifu Tenman-gū. When we visited the ume trees were starting to come into full bloom, their white and pink flowers signalling the welcome arrival of spring.

Besides the autumn season, I believe the summer season is also a great time to visit Komyozenji Temple, where you get to enjoy a perfect summer green scenery. Anyway, these are the photos that we took during the spring season; the color is not as vibrant as the autumn season, but this Karesansui garden still offers a calm and peaceful atmosphere.

A shrine with nice autumn colors. But my priority is to hike Homanzan behind it.
