The most beautiful place in Nagoya - Atsuta Shrine
"Keeper of a sacred sword"
Atsuta Jingu (shrine) lies just south of Nagoya. This is the pride of the city and loved by many in Japan. It was built in the third century to house one of the sacred swords of Japan, Kusagagi-no-tsurugi (Grass Cutting Sword). There is no picture of the sword and the public is not allowed to even view it. This sword is shrouded in mystery, and that's that.
The shrine is one of the few popular ancient sites in Nagoya. It is close to the city, but its main buildings are original, as far as I know. Atsuta is the old, in a country where old and new are side-by-side.
The grounds of Atsuta contain some truly amazing forests. There is one big tree decorated in ceremonial ribbons. It is believed to be over 1000 years old. Many of the trees here are at least that old.
If you really want to escape the city life of Nagoya, please visit Atsuta. It's truly a treasure and serves as a retreat from everything new that is Nagoya.
