Haritsuna Jinja Shrine針綱神社
This shrine located in Inuyama City is the sochinju (the center place to pray for local gods) for the Nobi area, and is believed to be the guardian deity of Inuyama Castle. Since Oda Nobunaga’s uncle, Oda Nobuyasu, donated a hand-carved statue of a dog and made prayers for easy childbirth and longevity, it is widely known as a place to ask blessings for conception of children, easy childbirth and longevity. Every year in April the famous Inuyama Festival is held, and is especially beautiful when the cherry blossoms are fully open and there is a parade at night of floats moving around by the light of paper lanterns, making for a dazzling sight.

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.
