  • Geku is the first shrine. Torii of Ise-shi Station first ⛩ the o-ISE, visit start ❗ ️ the small fashionable shop so seduced sort, while in a straight course about 5 minutes walk head arrives. The atmosphere like in the deep woods, many times I took a deep breath. It is sacred. It was not so spacious. On weekdays, the worshippers are sparse. It was visits to geku heart calm down.

  • It was ISE for the first time. So as the thoroughfare to visit geku first heard that visit geku. And was helpful in a quiet Grove of solemn atmosphere, once God hands together like in my heart, and this age of middle age. It was the moment at hand while hearing the sound of footsteps on gravel's step by step walking Temple could finally worship and joy born Japanese as I felt. One thing many Chinese tourists who just was surprise.

  • It is the warmth of a simple wooden shrine. God gently with hands together, I felt relieved that wrapped. Dotted with small, walk one after another and have fun. I'm here praying to and to bow in front of the Torii gate. Or pressing the shrine was crowded, but it forced people, and good manners. I guess location when I am tired if local distractions.

  • Thoroughfare, first of all, visit here. A tourist is not crowded, but is covered with trees that spectacle is breathtaking. This is where parking is also free, so ask first.
