Atsuta temple, one of thousand and more temples in Japan has it's own unique and landscape, so quite...and peace. I visited at first autumn, I can't imagine the beauty of the landscape if i visit at spring. From Nagoya just take 10 minutes less, by Meitetsu line to Jingu Mae.

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

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.
