  • A direct train home from Inuyama Castle, went to the shrine. The children wanted to see the three sacred treasures, it's talking about it. Treasures of sword you can see instead. Children who are interested in history, can see the Nara, bronze mirror and the staff were very helpful.

  • 剛好看到結婚式,而且是看到整個結婚儀式進行,很難得,七五三時候也有很多日本家庭帶同小朋友來參拜,想必在名古屋市是很有名的神宮,裡邊還有一座小小的博物館收藏了好多鋒利的刀劍  more »
  • Atsuta-jingu Shrine is dedicated to the sword of Kusanagi is in one of the three sacred treasures, traditionally attracts the faith as an important shrine. Defeated Imagawa Yoshimoto's army in the battle of Okehazama Oda Nobunaga after prayer for victory here, and it's very famous. It is more efficient to worship to wait for Atsuta Penglai hotels.

  • If you are a foreign tourist with different religion, you can consider to skip this place, this is a place for japanese to respect their gods. You may not feel interesting in their holy temple. And, no market or shops surround here
  • Ah nice quiet and peaceful shrine to visit if you happen to stop by Nagoya. I found occasionally they have traditional weddings here so if you're lucky, you may be able to see one.
  • unbeliveable that there is an very large peaceful area surrounding with big trees and many beautiful shrines in Nagoya city.
  • I'm foreigner came here to see legendary Kusanagi sword but it's no display , anyway this place still very nice and so calm surround by very old trees
  • The park around the shrine is huge, and quite peaceful. You can approach many of the most sacred places where the most important deities of Japanese shinto religion are enshrined, and throw water on a stone to get your wish granted. You won't see much of the main shrine except parts of the roof as it is enclosed behind two wooden wall belts, and only the outer belt's main gate is open. It's all clear pine wood and some gold, but very simple and pure style. Also they split the grounds in areas white stones and black stones.
