Atsuta Shrine

Visit this ancient shrine to admire its beautiful architecture, discover ancient relics and enjoy a blissful escape in the surrounding park.

The beautiful Atsuta Shrine is one of the most sacred sites in the city of Nagoya. Visit the shrine to witness traditional ceremonies, admire its architecture and historic artifacts, and relax in the tranquil woodland surroundings.

The original shrine is believed to have been built during the first or second century, under the rule of Emperor Keiko. It has been remodeled over the years, and you can see a variety of architectural styles that reflect the period in which each section was built. While much of the shrine was destroyed by fire during World War II, extensive restoration has returned the shrine to its original splendor.

Today, the shrine remains operational and is frequented by many locals every day. About 9 million visitors travel to Atsuta Shrine annually, and at peak periods it can become quite busy. Observe traditional ceremonies held at the shrine at certain times throughout the year, including Hatsu-Ebisu, a New Year ritual that strives to bring good fortune and Bugaku Shinki, a traditional dance performed in the forecourt of the shrine in May.

The Atsuta Shrine houses some of Japan’s most sacred relics within the Bunkaden, or treasure hall. Visit the hall to see traditional outfits, furniture and utensils from the ancient period, and swords donated by benefactors. Admire the intricate designs on the Bugaku masks used in dance rituals. The shrine is also said to be home to Kusanagi no Tsurugi, the ancient sword that is one of the Three Sacred Treasures of Japan, but it is not available for public viewing.

After you’ve visited the shrine, explore the woodland park. Stop by the restaurant within the park grounds for a bowl of kishimen noodles, a local delicacy.

The Atsuta Shrine is located just outside central Nagoya and is best reached by Japan’s efficient train system. The shrine is just a short walk from Jingu-mae Station. Some metered parking is available in the area. The shrine is open daily and is free to visit.
