Futamiokitama Shrine, Ise

(3.9/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Jutting from the sea, two large rocks wedded by thick straw ropes represent Futamiokitama 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. Arrange your visit to Futamiokitama Shrine and discover more family-friendly attractions in Ise using our Ise vacation route planner.

  • And a half trip in more than a century ago. And the surrounding rocks are unchanged, but up here go along the way is has changed dramatically. It is not a translation seems completely settled as a tourist destination,... to the shrine from the opposite bank hands together actually landed on the rocks, climb. I guess somehow I feel the nostalgia of old less "place to go" it.

  • In the opposite lane past the family Mart close to the shrine and rocks are your comments about the parking because parking along the coast are always full, so free parking is available. From there you can walk about 5 minutes.

  • By car through the ISE Futami coast, first visited here. We have to park your car, just follow the signs towards the sea along the coast lined with free parking. Impression is different from walking down the quay arrived at the shrine is close by and the Meoto Iwa rocks we were small and, still photos and in real. And then prayed at the shrine, ISE-Mairi from now to bring good luck. I thought when from this visit to Ise Jingu Shrine and this first pray to.

  • Nice spot and you can take a walk around here.
  • Clean but small shrine, not very interesting. People come here for the sunrise. Many stone frogs statues.
  • Awesome sacredness
