Almost every time I come to Nagoya I visit here because of the very special atmosphere. Not to mention that it is always nice to see so much green in a big city.

This shrine that has a big forest is 5minutes walk from Jingu-Nishi subway station. Visitors were hardly in the early morning, I was able to spend a peaceful time.

Carefully laid-out park, immaculate buildings. However, only the emperor can go inside(with a very few excedptional dates...)

If you have a LOT of time to spare then go, otherwise skip it! It is not a tourist attraction, it is just a place where japanese people go to pray. The surroundings are nice. The shrine is not ancient so the arquitecture is not stunning, it's rather simple. They don't charge an entrance fee, as I said before, its... More

Before I forget, if you are into Japanese calligraphy and or katana's, the treasures building is worth admission. These grounds are large and well taken care of. There is a lot to see, but except for the wall from Oda Nobunaga most is modern work or heavily restored. If you are solely looking for historical sites I would pass this,... More

Loved it! The whole family enjoyed our day walking through the myriad of shrines and temples in the area. For the reasonably healthy, as there is a bit of walking and waiting involved, this is a thoroughly peaceful and natural spot to enjoy. Especially to get away from Tokyo. We'll worth the drive, and the whole family has something to... More

Though it lacks the whimsy of tunnels of red torii of Fushimi Inari and the grandeur of the forest and shrine of Meiji in the scheme of shrines Atsuta Jinju is actually quite significant. A sword, one of the three sacred treasures within Shinto is kept at this shrine - the other two items are kept at Kokyo Shrine in... More

My 11 year old son and I spent a few hours wandering here. Absolutely stunning. Nice little town. I wouldn't recommend it in the rain though. Lots of outside walking.

The shrine itself is not interesting to look at. The park around it, is ok. We went on a Sunday and we were lucky! Many wedding and baby ceremonies. Beautiful to see the traditional clothing and the rituals. On the premisses you can eat kishimen noodles, delicious!
