Shirakata Tenmangu Shrine, also known locally as "Tenjin-san", is dedicated to Sugawara Michizane, a great scholar of the 9th century, as the God of Learning.
Every year on July 24th and 25th, there is a summer festival held here.
People carry small portable shrines on their shoulders through the streets, and a large number of stalls are set up, selling food, drink, toys and so on.
