Atsuta Jingu (Atsuta Shrine)熱田神宮


This shrine located in Nagoya City’s Atsuta Ward has been known familiarly as “Atsuta Sama” since long ago. Reported to have been established in 113, it is revered as a Great Shrine ranking second only to Ise Jingu Shrine. The shrine is famous as a place that enshrines the sacred sword Kusanagi-no-tsurugi, one of the three sacred treasures that symbolize the Imperial throne. The approximately 190,000-square meter premises are thick with kusunoki (camphor trees) that have been living for more than one thousand years, and are scattered with numerous setsumatsu-sha (smaller shrines managed under the shrine). There are numerous events and festivals held at the shrine including Hatsu Ebisu on January 5, and it is constantly bustling with visitors for Shichi-Go-San (shrine visit by children aged 7, 5 and 3), omiya-mairi (the first shrine visits by babies) and even Hatsu Mode (the first shrine visit of New Year).

On the weekend there are lots of young couples with their children coming for their birthday blessings. Traditional costume dress is beautiful

This is a very good shrine to look a. It gives you an idea of the Japanese shrine and architecture. Is worth a visit.
Reviewed:2018/10/26 Definately a place to visit!
Peaceful, spaceful and nature shrine. With a long walking path, there's nice but few local food stands. Can be reached easily by subway with less than 5 mins walk to shrine's gate.

          Aichi Main Areas


          Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
