Atsuta Shrine

Atsuta Shrine 熱田神宮 is considered one of the most prestigious shrines in Japan and houses one of the three Imperial Regalia of Japan, namely the Kusanagi sword.
Although this treasure isn't available for public display, it is believed that Yamato Takeru used this sword to defend himself.

Surrounded by thousands of trees, this large shrine compound offers a sense of spiritual tranquility for visitors, away from the busy concrete jungle.
