I visited here because I was told that I could see plum blossoms. Plum blossoms were blooming near the torii gate and near the shrine. There doesn't seem to be that many. The shrine is also magnificently built, and the main shrine seems to have been designated as an important cultural property. I came here to see the plum blossoms, but there were also a lot of cherry blossoms, and I think the scenery of the cherry blossoms and the shrine would be wonderful in the spring. When I returned home, I had a nice view of the city from the torii gate with the shrine in the background. I saw several groups of people also coming to see the plum blossoms, so I think it's a famous spot for plum blossoms and cherry blossoms.

Tenjin in Yamaguchi. The parking lot was up the narrow slope to the right of the torii gate, and behind the torii gate was the parking lot for worshipers. From there it's up a hill and stairs. If the awarding office above is not open, you can get a goshuin at the shrine office in front of the stairs. It's a great company.

Visited in March 2023. I came to the city so I came and tried it❗ Furukuma Shrine is located at the end of a narrow road Tenjin is an unusual name for a shrine... We enshrine Lord Michizane Sugawara❗ The deity enshrined is Sugawara Fukube Doji...Miko In Yamaguchi Prefecture, there are many tower gates and worship halls that are combined. I’m here❗ There are also magnificent sacred cows and sacred horses✨ There are cherry blossom trees along the approach...There are also hanging cherry blossoms within the shrine grounds. is very beautiful❗ I came to get a goshuin stamp❗ Please come out on the intercom at the awarding office. Thank you for writing it♪ While I was waiting, I heard the sound of drums~✨ It was comfortable✨ This is the nearby Noda Shrine, Toyoei Shrine It also serves as a title, so you can wear it here❗ It seems that the awarding place is open until 5 o'clock...but if you are going to be a little late, please let me know. Looks like it will be crowned He was a very kind and cheerful priest✨

It was my first time visiting, and they seem to be putting a lot of effort into winning the lottery. It's also nice to have a panoramic view of Yamaguchi city from here. There are various shrines within the grounds of the shrine. It's fun just walking around looking at them. It felt like it was valued by the locals. The main hall has three frogs in front, the center one is a plum and Ouchi rhombus, and the left one is bamboo and a phoenix. On the right side, a phoenix is ​​depicted on a pine tree. This method of incorporating pine, chiku, and plum blossoms, which are considered lucky charms, into decorations is said to be one of the oldest in Japan. The roof is a gabled roof, and is said to have been influenced by Buddhist architecture. The paper-and-ink painting of Tenjin (a nationally important cultural property) in the collection has Michizane Sugawara in the center, a plum branch at the top, and a waterfall at the bottom, making it look like a real thing. This Tenjin map was brought back to Yamaguchi by Moriharu Ouchi when he returned from Kyoto in 1429. It is said to have value as an early painting from the Muromachi period, and to show the relationship between the Ouchi clan and the Gozan Zen monks. It was a mystery as to where Furukuma-cho itself was, but after researching Furukuma Shrine beforehand and actually arriving there, I realized that it was a mystery.
