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.

Although we were here for only an hour on a wet day, the whole place exudes tranquility: from the pavilions to the manicured gardens. Some parts are out of bounds for private ceremonies. Pity there is hardly any sign, or brochure in English. Great place to take pictures, especially of local families paying respect

Absolutely beautiful Shrine, was my favourite attraction in Nagoya (however I did not go to the Toyota museum) the shrine was incredibly peaceful and had a small museum of treasures located on the grounds. There was also a coy pond alongside a small ramen cafe which had not only coy fish but also turtles and at least one eel. Extremely... More

This shrine open until late. I went at round 7 pm and left just before 9 pm. Very spiritual and motivating. Definitely recommend to visit.
