SpotAtsuta Jingu Shrine

On the Meijo Subway Line from Sakae Station, get off at Jingunishi Station to visit Atsuta Jingu Shrine. The shrine has a long and distinguished history and on the grounds are a 1,000-year old camphor tree forest and a "national treasure" treasure house. This is the second biggest shrine (after Ise Jingu Shrine) and enshrines the Kusanagi-no-mitsurugi (Kusanagi's sacred sword), one of three Imperial Regalia of Japan. There are traditional Japanese-style confectionaries and restaurants in this area, as well as the birthplace of Minamotono Yoritomo, who started the Kamakura shogunate in the 12th century.
