It is a very lovely garden worth walling around with beautiful tori gates. We were told it is respectful to bow to the front of the gates prior crossing through the gate. As with most shrines, you can only see the outside of the building which is said to house to host one of three sacred relics of Japan (a... More

This is not a spectacular place by any means, but it is a nice location to escape the city for an hour or two. Like most shrines you can't enter the building but you walk around the perimeter. There are some incredible trees that are hundreds of years old and the gardens looked nice but were closed when I visited.

Peace walk and serene place to spend an hour. Lots of local tours there and monks and their apprentices don't like to be photographed. Not much info in English though.

During the new year's time everyone would like to go to the shrine to pray for a good fortune for the coming year. Loads of decoration were established here to welcome visitors. The 'souvenir shop' was pack with people queuing to purchase new year charms. On average, the price for the charms were dearer than other places. Maybe they work... More

Worth a visit for the lush trees surrounding it. Only downside is there are no English translations for omomori (charms) or the history placards. Free entry, photos allowed most places. Has a museum too, but I didn't visit it.

This shrine was relatively more quiet and less active than other popular shrines in Japan. It makes for a nice stroll around but nothing more. I did however really enjoy the kishimen noodles at Miya Kishimen in the grounds of the shrine.

One of the famous Nagoya's temple. You should visit it it's not so far from the centre of the city and there are not a lot of people.

We had a peaceful stroll within the area. Other than that, we did not get to see anything happening in the shrine; except for several locals offering prayers. Overall it was a nice and quiet place. On our way out, we came across a family with the young children dressed in traditional clothing (kimono, etc.). I though they might be... More

This temple just like other shrine/temple are covered by tall trees which makes some pavement hard to see on a rainy day in late afternoons It does have its presence of tranquility when you are there When are have visited other famous temple then this shrine will not be high on the list for visits When we were there there...
