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.

Futami Okitama Shrine Reviews
ここから参拝して外宮→内宮へと続きます。 海沿いですので強風な時もあります。 帽子等を飛ばされないように注意してください。 神社の近道と言っている駐車場があり料金は1000円でしたがそのお土産屋で買える1000円分の買い物券が貰えました。 more »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.
二見神輿神社→伊勢神宮外宮→内宮と回るのが正式なルートだそうです。 連休中でしたが、意外に空いていました。政治的な問題も影響しているのか、特に海外の観光客が少ないのに驚きました。 カエルへの水かけ、夫婦岩など見所多くて楽しいです。 敢えて問題点を言えば、駐車場から神社までの間のお店／出店の呼び込みが激しく、少々鬱陶しいことでしょうか。 more »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.
