Government site of Ancient Kyushu.  Known as TOFURO, the site was used during the

Nara (710 to 794 AD) and Heian (794 to 1185 AD) period. The Dazaifu was responsible

for supervising Japan’s maritime frontier, as well as for administering the nine provinces 

and two island of the Saikaido (modern Kyushu).

 

 

In those days, a great edifice with vermillion columns and tiled roof stood at the foot of Mt. Ono, but

today all that remains is a park containing the huge foundation stones of the original building.

Kyokusui-no-en at Dazaifu Shrine

                                                                                                                                           HOME 
 
The festival is held on the first Sunday of March. Kyokusui-no-en is a Japanese traditional
ceremony held at Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine on the first Sunday of March, a purification
ceremony on a winding stream, is performed by ladies and gentlemen in a ceremonial court
robe under the plum blossoms in full-bloom. 
 

 
After the Tobiume-no-mai dance by shrine maidens, Kyokusui-no-En Festival begins.
Vermilion-lacquered cups full of
sake are set afloat down the stream

 
Before the cups reach each of the participants sitting along the stream, they have to make up

a Japanese poem called waka, and write it down on a strip of fancy paper. When the cups

reach the participants, they drink the sakeand hand the paper strip and cup over to an attendant.


 

The ceremony has its origin in a historical fact that Ono-no-Yoshifuru, an elder brother of a

noted-calligrapher Ono-no-Tofu, held a ceremony to appease the soul of Michizane Sugawara

and to beguile tedious hours in a rural life.
