Atsuta-jingu Shrine

Atsuta-jingu Shrine

Atsuta-jingu Shrine is said to have been founded during Emperor Keiko’s rule, around 1,900 years ago. Since then this shrine in Nagoya has been revered by all kinds of people, such as farmers, samurai and feudal lords. Atsuta-jingu enshrines the Kusanagi-no-tsurugi, a legendary sword that was awarded by the deity Amaterasu-omikami. Today, the shrine is home to many national treasures and is famous for its lucky spots. It is especially popular during the New Years season and in June, when the Atsuta Festival is held.
