Shrine is located about 10 minutes away from Atsuta Jingu Station. There’s a nice path that will lead you around the shrine and will take you about 15 minutes stroll to experience the peace and serenity of the surrounding. I visited on Tuesday morning and it wasn’t crowded. A beautiful shrine worth the visit when you’re in Nagoya.

Interesting park with rich history. Also good for a relaxing walk. I was not aware that you cannot see the divine sword as it is protected inside the shrine. Many other exhibits are available if you take your time to walk through the shrine.

A beautiful shrine, a must visit if you are in Nagoya. The grounds are large but the shrine itself was compact. I am guessing that not many tourists come here as all the signs are in Japanese only, so a translation app is recommended if you do not speak Japanese. It is worth reading about the significance of the shrine as well, and the sacred sword contained inside, which is hidden from public view. Definitely recommend if you are in Nagoya.

Pretty beautiful place that can be reached from the Atsuta station via JR pass. The park itself is beautiful with a nice looking boat structure that kids seem to adore. The nice looking wooden Tori gates around and the beautifully built shrine are definitely worth the time to enjoy the sights. You can buy amulets and fortunes at the shrine but they are slightly pricey at 1000 yen and 200 yen respectively . We thoroughly enjoyed walking around the clean park with toilets present. There was one store which was really popular selling udon. Be careful of the crowd there as they do steal peoples food.

We came here for 初詣(first shrine visit of the year) and as expected, there’s a lot of people! So many food displays too! But there’s not much benches to sit on. There’s also 🐓 everywhere here and Japanese seemed to be interested to it by taking photos of it. I wonder why? I think it’s the best shrine to visit. Even if it’s in the city you can feel serenity because of the nature.
