Futamiokitama Shrine, Ise
(3.9/5 based on 180 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.

  • From JR futaminoura station took leisurely 20 minutes on foot. If you use JR 1 hour 1-2 so need to check timetables. Also, near the shrine, had free parking. Here is saruda Gen ōmikami. That wish comes true in the Hall and a lot of small frog and water. "Alright frog" "lost what's frog", and seems dedicated, good luck. Also, the "Cave of heaven" is located next to the Hall, some Torii stands in the narrow.

  • Rent a car in ISE station and headed out. I parked at the parking lot at the souvenir shop near the shrine mouth spoke to free parking in the shop is wrong and failed. Now feel if parking fee 1000 yen gift 2000 yen bought in Chala is also souvenir really cheated something by now. It is a shrine in Futami okitama Jinja shrine main weather was so very fresh feeling is the best location. Parking is not perfect. By the way comes from the ISE area offers free parking right in front of the souvenir shop.

  • I went because I saw listed here to worship in front of Ise Jingu Shrine official said. The location is inconvenient to go by train. It's about 3000 Yen by taxi from Toba Station on. "This is some famous Meoto-Iwa or..." that atmosphere resulting emotion, tourists had to settle down and not be standing without, and hurriedly left. Walked as far as JR Futami station on the way back. If it is fine, but it would be cool in the rain, luggage had a walking umbrella was a little rough.

  • 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
  • หินแต่งงาน
