Fodor's Review

A shrine has stood at the site of Atsuta Jingu for 1,700 years. After Ise, this is the country's most important Shinto shrine. The Homotsukan 宝物館 (Treasure House) is reputed to house one of the Emperor's three imperial regalia—the Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi (Grass-Mowing Sword)—and although it is never on public display, there are many other worthy artifacts to see. Nestled among 1,000-year-old trees, making it easy to spot from the train, the shrine is an oasis of tradition in the midst of modern industrialism. About 60 festivals and 10 religious events are held here each year. From Meitetsu Nagoya Station take the Meitetsu Nagoya Line south to Jingumae Station. The shrine is across the road from the West Exit.
