Nice and peaceful place

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...

Take subway to Temma-cho station and walk about 5 minutes to reach the shrine. Upon the entrance, stood a huge torii, which is the connecting point between human and the divine worlds, so follow the Japanese ritual, bow before you entre and bow again before you leave.

Great place to visit when coming to Nagoya. The place is big and lots of old trees. The building seems have been renewed and all are non very good shape. Souvenir shop staffs wear a very iconic Japanese traditional dress.

Nagoya is not a hub of cultural attractions, so the few good ones it does have are worth seeing if you are here. Atsuta Shrine provides a feel traditional Japanese space within an otherwise concrete city. As you meander the paths around the shrine, you feel this contrast as you breathe in the fresh air that all the greenery of... More

I visited Atsuta Shrine in June and I must say I was totally lost in its beauty, charm and serene nature. To top it off, the rain showered my spirit and watered my soul. Perfect mind, body and green experience. Natural free flowing super high energy levels present at this shrine.

After visiting Nagoya Castle, we headed to Atsuta Shrine. There were several wedding ceremonies going-on in the shrine so if you want to witness a traditional Shinto wedding, visit the Shrine. There were also several restaurants located within the vast shrine grounds and we decided to try one that serves Kishimen noodles.
