Futami Okitama Shrine, Ise

Jutting from the sea, two large rocks wedded by thick straw ropes represent Futami Okitama Shrine--a husband and wife rock. Couples frequently come here to pray for a life full of happiness and love. The larger one, 9 m (30 ft) tall, represents the male, while the female boulder stands 4 m (13 ft). Allegedly the ropes date back to the 14th century. Enjoy the landscape of ocean and waves crashing over the rocks, and examine the shoreline's sculptures of hundreds of frogs, dedicated to the Shinto goddess of food.

  • From here, you will visit the outer palace → uchigu. Because it is by the sea, there is a strong wind at times. Be careful not to fly your hat. There was a parking lot which was said the shortcut of the shrine, and the fee was 1000 yen, but i got a shopping ticket of 1000 yen which I could buy at the souvenir shop.

  • It seems to be a formal route to go around with The Jimi Mikoshi Shrine → Ise Jingu Gaigu → Uchigu. It was during the holidays, but it was surprisingly empty. I was surprised to see that political issues were also affecting them, especially with the small number of foreign tourists. It is fun to see a lot of attractions such as water ing to the frog and the married couple rock. To put the problem dare, the call of the shop /store between the parking lot and the shrine is intense, is it a little depressing?

  • A nice place to see the Shirne. It’s take 45 minutes to see around. There’s a aquarium near by also. If you are in Ise then a visit might be okay. Parking space is bit less.
  • Iconic local shrine with the rope over the water and frogs statues.
