“One of the most important shrines in Japan”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

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.

“Peaceful place”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

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...)

“Attraction not so attractive”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

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 not a tourist attraction.

“Beautiful place to walk”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

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, but if you want a relaxing walk with a few historical things peppered around, enjoy the beauty of Japanese shrines and are in Nagoya, I would highly recommend to drop by this shrine. This is a convenient area to access and there are some nice places to eat etc before, during or after your stay.
