The path inside shrine is full of little stones which might not be easy to walk if you are wearing heels. I was thinking that I can have a look at the National Treasure, the sword but actually we can't see it. So it was a bit disappointed for me.

Atsuta shrine is supposed to be the home of the sacred sword ( one of the three imperial regalia of ancient Japan ) but unfortunately it is never displayed to the public. Short train ride of less than 10 minutes ( on Meitetsu Line) from Nagoya Station to Jingumae Station. Entrance is across the road from the station. I didn't... More

There's something about this place which gives off a very zen, calm vibe as soon as you step into the grounds. The shrine itself is very simple, however it's the surrounding grounds that are lovely to walk. The scents and peaceful calm of it conveys a spiritual well being to the visitor. It's easy to spend over an hour here,... More

This is a huge place. To really enjoy this place, need to spent time exploring. We went on Sunday, at it was for Shichi Go San ceremony, there were lots of family with children in traditional dress. Interesting to watch and appreciate the ceremony. Lack the luster of other shrine in Japan but a peaceful place to visit if you... More

Atsuta temple, one of thousand and more temples in Japan has it's own unique and landscape, so quite...and peace. I visited at first autumn, I can't imagine the beauty of the landscape if i visit at spring. From Nagoya just take 10 minutes less, by Meitetsu line to Jingu Mae.

Atsuta claims to be the #2 shinto shrine in Japan. It is now hemmed on all sides by traffic noise, and is Very Convenient to the JinguMae train station. It is geared to a Japanese audience, with very little non-Japanese signage even in the tiny museum. When visiting, we saw several priests and acolytes in nice robes, a few babies... More

Been to it 3 times in a week time, I enjoyed it a lot and I was lucky to witness a religious festival in it which was even nicer, I loved taking photos there and would love to go there again. It is opened day and night and you can get amazing pictures day and night if you are into... More

I'm not a spiritual or religious person at all, but I found this temple to be very fascinating. It's located right along the same train line from the airport into the city so it's very easy to get to. I thought it was interesting that they were able to preserve it's natural forest area around it even while being in... More
