Atsuta Jingu Shrine Reviews
９月下旬に訪れました。バス停を降り、一の鳥居をくぐると、木々に囲まれた参道を進んでいきます。突き当りを右に曲がり、砂利の参道を進んでいくと、本宮が見えてきます。平日の夕方ということもあり、人もまばらで、ゆっくりと参拝をし、御朱印もいただきました。本宮から南に５分くらい進んだところには別宮の八剣宮や上知我麻神社などがあります。今回は時間がなかったのですべての社殿にお参りすることはできませんでしたので... more »I visited at the end of September. After getting off the bus stop and passing through a torii, you will follow the approach surrounded by trees. Turn right at the end and follow the gravel approach to see the main shrine. Because it was an evening on weekdays, the people were sparse, and they visited the shrine slowly, and we received a red seal. About five minutes south of The Main Shrine are Hachikengu shrine in Betsumiya and Kamichi-ma Shrine. I didn't have time this time, so I couldn't visit all the shrines, so I'd like to visit them slowly next time. However, there are many new shrines.
神宮前駅から徒歩で行けます。駅前の大通りを渡ると緑に覆われた大きな敷地があります。本宮までは、木に囲まれた坂を登っていきます（道は舗装されています）。伊勢神宮や明治神宮のように、厳かです。土日に訪れましたが、観光客や地域の方の散歩道として賑わっていました。 more »It is a short walk from Jingumae Station. When you cross the main street in front of the station, you will find a large green-covered site. To the main shrine, we climb edalyswhere with trees (the road is paved). Like Ise Jingu and Meiji Jingu Shrine, it is strict. I visited on Saturday and Sunday, but it was crowded as a walking path for tourists and local people.
Good place to enjoy New Year atmosphere and to understand the Japanese culture. The place is quite large with a lot of beautiful scenes and great sculptures. You can come here to pray and wish many things or just relax yourself and immerse to the beautiful nature. Worth to visit in Nagoya.
Large compound and lots of trees. Nice strolling in the are. The whole place gives you sense of peace and tranquility. Feeling inner peace visiting this place.
