本宮の奥のこころの小径の「清水社」は、三度水をかけて祈念すると願い事が叶い、この水で肌を洗えば綺麗になるともいわれていて、女性に人気のパワースポット☆ 境内は緑とパワーあふれる荘厳な神社でした。 more »Shimizusha, a small diameter of the heart of the back of the main shrine, is said to be beautiful if you pray with water three times, and if you wash your skin with this water, it is said that it will become beautiful, and the popular power spot for women was a solemn shrine full of greenery and power.
ひつまぶしを食べに名古屋まで行き、時間があったので熱田神宮にお参り行きました！ 凄く雰囲気が良くて清々しい気分になりました。 more »I went to Nagoya to eat Hitsumabushi, and I had time to visit Atsuta Shrine! The atmosphere was really good and I felt fresh.
Good place to enjoy New Year atmosphere and to understand the Japanese culture. The place is quite large with a lot of beautiful scenes and great sculptures. You can come here to pray and wish many things or just relax yourself and immerse to the beautiful nature. Worth to visit in Nagoya.
