Founded during the reign of Emperor Keikō (Japan’s 12th emperor), Atsuta Shrine houses the legendary sword “Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi,” one of the Three Sacred Treasures of Japan. The artifact is not available for public viewing; but, head to the area’s Treasure Hall to see over 4,000 relics—including a number of cultural assets! Millions of visitors from around the globe flock to the Shinto shrine annually. It gets extra crowded during the New Year when Japanese families convene as part of tradition, so plan your visit accordingly.
