One-Day Tour from Nagoya

Atsuta Shrine

Atsuta Shrine (熱田神宮, Atsuta Jingū) is one of Shinto's most important shrines. It enshrines the Sun Goddess Amaterasu and stores the sacred sword Kusanagi, which is one of the three imperial regalia. Note, however, that the sword is never displayed to the public.

Nagoya Castle 

Nagoya Castle was built in the beginning of the Edo Period as the seat of one of the three branches of the ruling Tokugawa family, the Owari branch. As such, it was one of the largest castles in the country, and the castle town around it ultimately grew to become Japan's fourth largest city.

Osu Kannon Temple 

Osu Kannon (大須観音, Ōsu Kannon) is a popular Buddhist temple in central Nagoya. Originally built during the Kamakura Period (1192-1333) in neighboring Gifu Prefecture, the temple was moved to its current site by Tokugawa Ieyasu in 1612 after the original temple had been repeatedly damaged by severe flooding. The current buildings are 20th century reconstructions. 

National Treasure Inuyama Castle 

One of four national treasure castles in Japan, located on the south side of the KISO River. INUYAMA castle was constructed by uncle Nobunaga ODA, Nobuyasu ODA in 1537. It was at the very border of OWARI (present AICHI pref.) and MINO (GIFU) and a very important base in wartime, so that its owner was changed many times by every war.
