From Getaboutable contributor Accessible Japan:
Komeido Tenjin Shrine is dedicated to Sugawara no Michizane. A politician and intellectual during the Heian period, Michizane was demoted and expelled from Kyoto when Emperor Daigo came to the throne. After he died in 903, Kyoto experienced a series of disasters and the people attributed to Michizane’s spirit. To correct the emperor’s mistake, he was deified and became known as Tenjin-sama, Shinto god of knowledge and study.
The shrine is should not be missed in late April to early May when the temple’s wisteria flowers are in bloom and the shrine holds the the Fuji Wisteria Festival. It is also a popular spot for viewing plum blossoms in February. Read Accessible japan’s full review here.
