InformationInformation

Yushima Tenmangu (or also called Yushima Tenjin) was established in 458. It enshrines Sugawara Michizane, a great scholar of the 9th century, as the God of Learning. During the spring examination season, the shrine is thronged by students praying for their success in the entrance examinations.
There are about 300 Japanese plum trees in the precincts that were planted in connection with Sugawara Michizane. The Shaden architecture, entirely constructed with Japanese cypress in 1995, is a must-see.
