Many sake barrels were placed

Shot in Dazaifu Tenman-Gu, a Shinto shrine in Dazaifu, Fukuoka.

Dazaifu Tenman-Gu shrine is dedicated to Sugawara no Michizane who was a scholar, poet, and politician of the Heian Period. And it was believed that the prayers for the school achievement would be answered when people prayed at this shrine.

The objects in the photo were sake barrels and they were sacrificed to the deities. Various sake breweries dedicated the offerings. Most of the deities in Shintoism love sake.
