Tiger in Hofu tenmangu shrine, Hofu City, Yamaguchi pref. 16km

防府天満宮の虎(山口県防府市)のGPSアート

GPS Art of Chinese Zodiac Animal Drawn on One of Japan’s Three Great Tenjin Temples✨

This is a course of GPS art of the animal of the Chinese zodiac, the tiger, where you can visit Hofu Tenmangu Shrine, also known as the first Tenjin Shrine in Japan.
The shrine was built the year after the death of the main deity, Sugawara Michizane, and is therefore called “Japan’s first Tenjin Shrine”. Hofu City itself has developed around this Tenmangu Shrine, so there are many events and visitors throughout the year. It is especially crowded during the New Year’s visit season with about 430,000 visitors. For access by car, there is a temporary parking lot in the vicinity with a capacity of 1,000 cars.

The course will take you around the central area from Hofu Tenmangu Shrine to Hofu Station. It’s a great way to see not only Hofu Tenmangu Shrine, but also the surrounding urban area that developed along with it, so give it a try while you’re visiting!
