An easy place to find off Atsuta subway.Only 5 minutes walk.Not a great deal to see but go for a quiet walk along a path right side of shrine for a short peaceful 15 minute walk through the forest and listen to the birds back in a loop to the shrine.

It is quite nice Buddist Shrine in Nagoya, quiet and beatiful Japanese style temple. Easy access by subway, but not much to do inside. worth spending just an hour there, would be enough

I got off at Jingu-Mae Station and there was a lot of signage to the shrine, which is very useful for non-Japanese speakers. I saw the shrine, and felt the reverence that the Japanese people place on this place. Then I explored the hidden trails, which are not marked but paths on either side of the shrine. This is the...

this Shrine is one of the most 3 bigger Shrine in Japan. It is well but some of building are maintaining so not too much history building we can see

Surrounded by nature, this is a very peaceful place to visit. If you go on graduation season, you'll see young ladies on their special kimonos and animal fur wrapped around their necks/shoulders to keep them warm.

Avoid coming in the summer to see Atsuta Jingu Shrine, unless no mosquito ever had the interest to bite you. They can be on your arms even when you are walking.

Be warned, I was eaten alive by mosquitos! So bring mosquito spray with you, it might help. If you don't know how to buy mosquito spray, here's how. The name of the brand is Mushi bai bai, and you pronounce it "mushi bye bye". Ask for it at any drugstore and you should be ok. The area itself is really... More

One of the few places in Nagoya with actual trees that become like a forest. This area feels about 4 degrees cooler that the rest of the city. Nice traditional Shrine with a very Japanese feel to it. The only thing I can complain about is they need more chairs or benches around to be able to sit down and... More

Cultural site that was so serene and peaceful. The area is green with trees and so fresh. Quite a walk from the train station.

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.
