  • 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.

  • I went to Nagoya to eat Hitsumabushi, and I had time to visit Atsuta Shrine! The atmosphere was really good and I felt fresh.
