Nagoya Station 

[Atsuta Jingu Shrine]

Enshrining the Kusanagi sword, one of the three sacred treasures of the imperial house

This prestigious shrine is enclosed deep within verdant grounds, despite being located in the city. The Atsuta Jingu Shrine includes 45 shrines in and outside of the precincts, such as the Kamichikama Shrine that sees crowds of people at the first ebisu, and the Takakura Musubi-miko shrine to the guardian deity of child-raising, as well as the main shrine. A spring called Shimizusha is located at the back of the main shrine, where it is said that if you wash your eyes with it, your sight gets better; and if you wash your skin with it, your skin gets clearer. The Nobunaga-bei Wall near the main shrine and which was dedicated by Nobunaga Oda, is a piece of architecture with a historic tale to tell. People affectionately call this shrine "Atsuta-san".
