Shrines Around Nagoya

神社

We have featured a number of quirky shrines and festivals around the Nagoya area: the Momotaro Shrine in Inuyama popular with children, the 1000s of inari fox statues at Toyokawa Inari Shrine, Tagata Shrine and its phallic festival in March, the Naked Festival and Shin Otoko at Konomiya Shrine and the Horse Festival at Tado Shrine in Mie Prefecture.

Nagoya's most important shrine is Atsuta Jinja, one of the top three shinto shrines in Japan.
