Koinoki Shrine

Koinoki Shrine which enshrines the God of Love was built as a subordinate shrine since Mizuta Tenmangu was founded in 1226 (Karoku 2). People think that Michizane Sugawara must have been missing the Emperor and his family as he passed away at Dazaifu. It is said that Koinoki Shrine was built to comfort Michizane’s soul. Young people believe in the God of Love as a good match and happiness.The shrine is a well-known place for praying to make a good match as well as a wedding ceremony for only the bride and groom. Heart shaped porcelain panels cover Koi Sando(an approach to the shrine). A Heart-shaped Crest of the shrine, paper fortunes, amulets, and wooden plaques are popular among people.
