Full of historical information and the origins of Japanese belief.

Beside the site, it comes with the street market where you can do many things. So come early and you may feed the pigeon as well.

Easy to get to by bus and it's centrally located in Nagoya. It's a peaceful get away from busy Nagoya. It's surrounded by trees so you feel like you are in a forest. The actual temple style is somewhat like what you find in Izumo\Ise. It really reminds me of the Meji Shrine in Tokyo except smaller.

Don't forget to try their Kishimen when you are touring the shrine. As mentioned by some traveler, they have those child blessing ceremony there. The compound is quite big and you can occasionally see priest walking around. They also have a blessing corner where you can purchase all those Japanese amulets. Just don't forget to eat the Kishimen.

Simply beautiful. If you're looking to understand a little bit more about Japanese culture and shintoism, definitely a place to visit.

In Japan, November is a gala month for children of 3, 5, and 7 years of age. We could see so many pretty children with KIMONO. And also beautiful bride! It was typical Japanese wedding with SHIROMUKU Kimono.That's fine. I was impressed. You can study about military commander BUSHOes of the warring states SENGOKU period.

Visited must as they have a child blessing ceremony. Its a scene to remember as many families brought their children all dressed up in traditional Japanese outfits and it all looks so picturesque. The temple itself is beautifully built and the temple complex is actually quite large comprising of many buildings and other shrines housing different deities and it even... More

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
