Tsushima – jinja Shrine
Tsushima – jinja Shrine is a Shinto shrine at the head of a national network of around 3,000 shrines dedicated to the deity Gozu-Tenno.
Believed to protect from epidemics and other calamities, many people still travel from various faraway places to visit this shrine even today.
It has a long history, and famous samurai from the past worshipped faithfully at this shrine, including Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and the branch of the ruling Tokugawa house that controlled the Owari area. The 2-storey gate located within the shrine complex is said to have been donated by the samurai Toyotomi himself. Come and visit this shrine and get a sense of the history of Japan!

*Those who wish to can take part in a prayer session.
(This may not always be possible, depending on availability. Furthermore, a separate fee is charged for this experience, starting from ¥6,000 for a family.)
(If you wish to take part, please contact your guide or Authentrip in advance.)

Old Hotta’s House
Enjoy the characteristic architecture of this building, a style that was prominent in the Edo period (1603-1868). You can imagine what it was like to live in old Japan as you view the tatami-matted hall, authentic teahouse, and old-fashioned kitchen. The site provides many opportunities to snap great photos of typically Japanese scenes. Visitors are also afforded the rare chance to see a palanquin up close (a type of human-powered transport in which a passenger is carried in a box-shaped vehicle). Don't miss this opportunity to experience what life was like in Edo-period Japan.

Tsushima Townscape

We can change our route according to everyone's interests, such as architecture, culture, or Japanese cuisine, so you can enjoy the things that you want to see and do the most!

Didn’t know all this history was close to Nagoya

This was a great little day trip. We had two days in Nagoya and needed something fun and cultural to do. Tsushima was the perfect place for us. We went in May so the wisteria were blooming. It was so nice to chill underneath the flowers for a little while. I hope we can go to the Tenno festival someday. I want to take some photos of the festival in the river!

Our Expert on This Area

Tsushima has been a bustling inland port since the days of Oda Nobunaga. We’re just thirty minutes from Nagoya so we’re easy to get to. The matcha green tea culture and old fashioned houses from long ago are still here today. Our UNESCO-registered festival has been taking place for around six hundred years. We hope you can come see the festival and experience Japanese culture from long ago here in Tsushima.
