A solemn place of worship. Huge area full of big trees, so even on a sunny day you'll be walking under the shade of trees. Buddhist will love this place very much but other religion might not enjoy it very much because you won't see much there.

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.

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

Plan a couple of hours to enjoy the grounds, the architecture and the people watching. Well worth the subway ride.

The grounds were beautiful. Well maintained pathways that lead from shrine to shrine. Wonderful color. A small museum is inside the grounds as well with an exhibit that rotates on a monthly basis. dont forget to go inside the main building and have a cup of green tea while you watch some informative videos.

Surrounded by nature, this shrine reflects the Japanese culture: pray for good health, or thank for good fortune. Take a walk around and a breath of fresh air.
