I'm not a spiritual or religious person at all, but I found this temple to be very fascinating. It's located right along the same train line from the airport into the city so it's very easy to get to. I thought it was interesting that they were able to preserve it's natural forest area around it even while being in... More

One of the top three ginkus in Japan. Many Japanese still believe in their own Shindoism which influence the Japanese culture so deeply that a traveler must come and experience.

Easy to visit, it's on the same train route as the one to the Airport. We're lucky to bump into watching the "Onzosai", which was interesting.

Ok it's a shrine for a religion that I don't know much about but really.... I just don't get it. The centerpiece is a sword apparently, I have no idea where it was, there is no English signage and no pictorial signage that we saw. Obviously large crowds are catered for but why, I gave no idea. When I visit... More

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
