    Atsuta Shrine

    Atsuta-no-Ookami, the enshrined deity of Atsuta Shrine in Nagoya City, is a unique part of Japanese culture worth learning about. The sacred sword Kusanagi-no-tsurugi, one of the three sacred treasures that symbolize the Imperial throne, is the enshrined deity and represents Amaterasu-Oomikami who is the father of Japan. It is a venerable Shinto shrine which houses the enshrined "Five Great Gods of Atsuta", all of whom are mythological and connected with the sacred sword. This shrine is considered to be a high-class shrine next to Ise Shrine, and is located in the center of Nagoya but has a vast site of about 290,000 square metres. The area is crowded with worshipers from all over the country during the New Year's visit and at the Atsuta Festival in summer, but offers a power spot in the city that brings silence away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The forest is home to trees that have been growing for over 1,000 years, and offers peace and relaxation just from walking through the shrine grounds.
