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.

  • Miharaiyama going in front of the shrine, has been struck with splashes of Futami Bay takanami. I was scared. Even though the waves are higher normal tide win. Light is. Probably. Sometimes came ago the tide is high, the droplets. If both pass through the sea, not had. The frog in the water have to ask. Keep an eye so hard.

  • 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.
