Nagoya, Japan (Atsuta Shrine)


It was very cold and windy that day and I could still remember my shivering back as we walked inside what looked more like a forest than a shrine. Even if the sun was shining as brightly as ever, that did not offer any comfort against the ice cold breeze. It was the chilliest I remember spring to be. But despite the uncomfortable cold weather, Atsuta Shrine was worth the journey. It looked more like a forest and a labyrinth more than a shrine to be honest. There were so many turns and everything looked almost the same. You can get lost in there but because there are many people around, of course you won’t. I love Atsuta Shrine because it was quiet and peaceful – a different surrounding than what you will see outside the gigantic Torii gates (which is a bustling highway on one side and a residential area on another).
 
I did not have much courage to take my hands out of my jacket (I was pulling it down as much as I could) because of the cold weather so I was only able to take a small amount of pictures. I would have loved to take more but I couldn’t. My hands just couldn’t take it.

  7. Yes! I am going to Tokyo this July and I can't wait! The shrines are amazing and don't forget to include Kyoto in your itinerary. You will love it there! It is still my favorite place in Japan so fa (I've only been to Osaka and Nagoya though). And you will die with the shopping! Make sure you have lots and lots of money because all that kawaii stuff, makeup and fashion items will make a huge dent on your savings!
