Atsuta Shrine in Nagoya, Honshu, Japan | Museum

Atsuta Shrine is one of Shinto's most important shrines. It enshrines the Sun Goddess Amaterasu and stores the sacred sword, one of the three imperial regalia. Note, however, that the sword is never displayed to the public.
Atsuta Shrine stands in a pleasant, wooded park in southern Nagoya. During the Meiji Period, the shrine was remodeled after the Ise Shrines in the purely Japanese Shinmei-zukuri architecture style.
A pleasant thing to do after viewing the shrine buildings, is to try Atsuta Shrine's version of the kishimen noodles, one of Nagoya's local specialities. A small restaurant can be found on the shrine grounds.
