豊受大御神トヨウケノオオミカミが祀られている外宮は豊受大神宮と呼ばれ内宮の天照大御神の食事を担当した神様です。だから食品に携わる私は必ずお参りをします。内宮は右側通行で参道を歩きますが外宮は左側通行です。真ん中を歩く人は神様の通り道を邪魔している事になるので気をつけましょう。前回の式年遷宮の折に出来た「せんぐう館」がありここは壮大な模型や丁寧な解説で必ず寄るべき施設だと思います。厳かな雰囲気の訳が... read more »Geku is enshrined, receiving great sacred toyoukenooomicami is a God called Toyouke Daijingu, was responsible for the Naiku enshrines Amaterasu Omikami meal. So my food is always praying. Naiku walks on the right approach to the geku is left. Be careful people who walk in the Middle will have disturbed the path of God. I think sengû for the last time on the occasion of the ceremony was "sengukan", here is the facility should be anywhere in the epic model and clear explanations. This is fall hard in the real meaning of the solemn atmosphere.show original
また内宮とは違い何か穏やかな心が落ち着く空間が控えています。玉砂利を踏んで進むにつれ心が落ち着く漢字がとてもしました。また木立ちの立派なことにも圧倒せれました。Also in contrast to the inner shrine, something calm calming space ahead. So kanji as forward, step on the gravel and calms the mind. Overwhelmed by the splendid with wood stand seremashita.show original
先輩が企画してくれた旅行で行って来ました。 伊勢神宮は願い事をするのではなく、感謝をするところらしいので、今年色々あったことに対して、感謝して来ました。 近くの池の前に休憩スペースがあり、のんびりと堪能することができました。I went on a trip organized by seniors. That was this year rather than the Ise Jingu Shrine to pray to God, thanks to the so I came grateful. You could enjoy leisurely and resting space in front of the nearby pond.show original
One of my favorite shrines because of the nature and scenery. There is also a long market street nearby with traditional stores which makes it fun for exploring.
Shrine is set out over extensive grounds so allow time for the walk. You can't actually go into or even clearly see the main shrine which was a bit of a surprise. In spite of being in the middle of a small an ordinary town, the shrine grounds retain a special an memorable aura.
Geku (external shrine of Ise-jingu) is located in a big park with magnificent old trees, it's easy to enjoy the walk. Several buildings here and there, all with the same clear wood and gold simple pure style. All doors closed. You won't see much of the main building, this one being behind two 3 meters tall wall barriers. Interesting black stone/white stone shrine ground areas separation. Access via bus from the other half of Ise-jingu (Naiku) is simple and well indicated.
I want to say that the actual location itself is stunning and beautiful itself. One can truly feel the sacredness and the age of such a place. What I want to address is a willful ignorance of the elderly or physically disabled. The holiest site in the Shinto religion is essentially off limits to people who cannot make the final climb up a set of stairs to the beautiful grand shrine. Mind you these are not some ancient stairs imbued with holy symbolism, they are brand new. Plenty of people could not pray simply because they had to stop of the base of the stairs. I have seen plenty of shrines and temples across Japan make accommodations for the elderly and disabled so why not add a ramp up the stairs? Seems unconscionable to me.
