If you like to get bitten by mosquitoes and see absolutely NOTHING interesting (or nothing at all, actually) - that's the place for you. I never write reviews but it was such a bad experience for me that I had yo share. Avoid it.

This is a lovely shrine surrounded by beautiful old trees offering a cool walk on a hot day, the facilities were modern and the shrine is easy to get to as it is opposite Jingue-Mae train station

This is a Shinto shrine traditionally believed to have been established around 1,900 years ago, and is considered as one of the three most famous (prestigeous) shrines in Japan, along with Izumo Taisha shrine and Ise Jingu shrine. We Nagoya residents are very proud of having this shrine in the City. Within the Atsuta Jingu, there are some small shrines... More

Atsuta Jingu is a traditional Shinto shrine with picturesque grounds and large Torii at each entrance. The area around the main shrine buildings is closed to the public and can’t be accessed except during festivals. The shrine can only be seen from a distance, which is common for Shinto shrines. Visitors expecting a Buddhist style temple similar to Osukannon may... More

The shrine is in a park and its pretty big. There are occasionally some sumo matches at the shrine, or a demonstration of how they make a Katana or Nodachi, which is pretty cool to see.

Atsuta Jingu or Atsuta Shrine) has been one of the greatest centers of worship in Japan from ancient times. The Atsuta Shrine is home to the “Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi (a sword)", which is one of the Three Sacred Imperial Treasures. The museum houses quite a good collection of sword, samurai swords etc, and it was great experience to look at the collection.... More

From the airport, you could go to Jingu Mae using the meitetsu line. If you love history, not to mention a cool place in the area, Atsuta Shrine is the place to visit. I went here right before going to Nagoya Castle.

If you spend a long time in Japan, pretty soon all the shrines and temples begin to blur. Sadly most of them are rebuilds on their originals since they were lost to World War 2 or fires that ravaged the empire (very sad). While some shrines have done a good job at creating a sense of history, some have failed,... More
