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

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

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 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
