Art & Architecture History
Free Admission

Atsuta Jingu Shrine is an ancient Shinto shrine in Nagoya city, Aichi Prefecture. According to legend, it was founded in the early 2nd century to house a mystical sword called Kusanagi. In the oldest extant chronicle of Japan, the Kojiki, the shrine is mentioned as one of the most important alongside Ise Jingu Shrine. While the architecture of the shrine's building follows ancient models, many of the buildings are modern reconstructions that were necessitated by the destruction of the original buildings in World War Two. If you are interested in Japanese history, you may also be interested in checking out the shrine's treasure museum.
