  • The shrine, 50 years ago, was a mother's hand I also visited 753. I was very tired, and spot healing visit I think. Crowded on weekends since weekdays is recommended. Were crowded with people but now is 753.

  • 熱田神宮環境相當的清幽,裡面的陳設也非常日式,不過度商業, 讓人深刻地感受日本文化,非常值得一遊,裡面有賣拉麵,不難吃 
  • It was a quiet, soothing place. Nagoya Station is also near good. Is visited and noodles to eat during the scent was eaten early in the morning for.

  • 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.
