Futamiokitama Shrine, Ise

(3.9/5 based on 190+ 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.
