Ise Shrine Geku, Ise

Bustling with worshippers, Ise Shrine Geku represents the outer shrine of the iconic Ise-Jingu (Grand Shrine). Drawing nearly 7 million visitors each year, this shrine remains one of Japan's holiest Shinto sites and features a small edifice stripped of ornamentation and nestled among rocks and trees. A guide from the local tourist office can provide more insight and explain the history and significance of this historic site.

  • I heard that new year's day was crowded at the new year's shrine, so I took a shuttle bus from the parking lot away. It was not as crowded as I had expected, so I was able to visit the shrine properly.

  • Unlike Uchinomiya, Tonomiya is located straight ahead of Ise-shi Station. It is convenient to go even on foot. Inside is surrounded by tall trees and you can feel nature. There are several small palaces as well as the main shrine.
