Kyushu Travel Guide

Site of Dazaifu Government Office


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.
