Visiting both a temple and a shrine makes your understanding of Japanese culture
You will visit Dazaifu tenmangu shrine and Nanzoin temple, which are the two major sightseeing spots in Fukuoka, then come back to downtown area to visit two more places, ruins of Fukuoka castle and Tochoji temple.
Leaving the hotel at 9:30, about a 40min ride takes you directly to Dazaifu shrine. You do not need any waiting time for trains and buses or subways. Then, you'll visit Nanzoin temple directly from Dazaifu temple, which will be very tough if you use a public transportation. Then you will come back to downtown Fukuoka area to see the ruins of Fukuoka castle, and Tochoji temple. You can save a lot of time by using the van.
