Morofuku Tenmangu Shrine was founded in 1644 with Sugawara-no-Michizane as its enshrined deity.During a recent renovation, the word "Tenmangu" appeared on the back of a board reading "Sugawara Shrine."When the word "Tenmangu" was also discovered on a box made in 1752 to house Sugawara-no-Michizane's hanging scrolls, it was decided that the shrine should use the renovation as an opportunity to restore its original "Tenmangu" name. So, in 1999, the shrine was renamed Morofuku Tenmangu. The carvings in the inner sanctuary, designated a Daito City important cultural property, are an example of Momoyama architectural style. Thanks to the Heisei era renovations, the carvings have been restored to their original, colorful splendor.The liveliest time of year at the shrine is its grand autumn festival in October. Put on by the city, the festival is marked by rows of food stalls, as well as a parade of large and small danjiri floats. Additionally, the enshrined deity is a god of teeth, said to be very effective on toothaches.
