Atsuta Shrine | Nagoya


Atsuta Jingu, a famous sightseeing spot near Nagoya Station.

It is a spot rich in historical interest.

Recently, there are many power spots in the precincts.

This time, we will introduce the power spot of “Atsuta Jingu” that locals don’t know.

When you visit Nagoya!


Atsuta Jingu Shrine is about 6 minutes from Meitetsu Nagoya Station on the Nagoya Railway.

When you leave the station’s west exit, you can see it in the forest called “Atsuta no Mori”.

Atsuta Shrine has a long history and is a shrine made from the legend of the family of the Japanese Emperor 1900 years ago.

It is dedicated to the emperor’s ancestor and has many valuable national treasures.

At Jingu Shrine, we hold a variety of celebrations for people’s lives and many fun and fulfilling activities with children and local people.

In 113, Takeru Yamato passed away in the Nose field of Ise, and the sword of Kusanagi was beaten in Atsuta.

In 1560, Nobunaga Oda dedicated the earthenware. It is still on the grounds.

In 1860, it became the Jingu Shrine, and the name changed from Atsuta Shrine to Atsuta Jingu. Since then, there have been wars and buildings have been rebuilt.


Then, I would like to continue to worship.

Atsuta Shrine has “East Gate”, “West Gate” and “Main Gate (South Gate)”.

This time, we started the worship from “East Gate” which is the closest to Jingumae Station.

The large torii that appears as soon as you enter the site and exit the parking lot is East Gate.


In Japanese shrines, the center of the approach is the path through which God passes, so don’t walk.

Introducing “Hongu” where one of the three sacred treasures “Kusanagino Miturugi” is enshrined.

The Atsuta Shrine has long been known as “Atsuta Shrine” and is visited by about 7 million worshipers annually and is famous as a shrine with one of three sacred treasures.

Its area is about 190,000 square meters. There are 28 shrines in the precinct, including the main shrine where Ogami Atsuta, the god of Atsuta Shrine, is enshrined.

So-called power spots are old buildings and old trees in the precincts.

When you see the main shrine in front and go to the left, you will find the entrance to the path.

This is the entrance to the approach path called “Kokoro no Komichi” following “Ichinomisaki Shrine”

Kokoro no kokoro and Ichinomisaki Shrine were previously unaccessible, but have been able to worship since December 2012.

However, photography is still prohibited because it is the most sacred place in Atsuta Shrine.

The small diameter is from 9:00 to 16:00.


Atsuta Shrine is a famous tourist spot along with Ise Shrine in the vicinity of Nagoya.

It’s highly recommended for Hatsumode, so please visit it.
