  • Went to Ise-shi Station on the JR. If the station walk straight head arrives. Was a four-year Buri ISE geku is surprisingly quiet and walking slowly, mawaremashita. Also rest on a resting place on the way back about 1 hour if it was enough.

  • In the late-night bus from Shinjuku to Nagoya. From there went to Ise-shi Station on Kintetsu bus. Too much 7:00 I arrived in Ise-shi Station. Perhaps many people will pilgrimage to Ise Shrine in the first place? Some restaurants to gekū shrine from Ise-shi Station offering wake-up. Early in the morning it was very clear, refreshing. You pass through the gate than the shrine and bowed, and guarded by the Manor of photography in the Holy Land seems to have carefully. Walk on the road, compared to the inner shrine not far wide and after a while, you will see the right hand have to motomiya. Walking seems kakaranasa an hour. Bekku (Taga shrine) enshrines motomiya, where ogami Japanese soul enshrines the roughness soul and I will go to the order. Nokyo-sho and amulets in the Kagura-den. You can also ask nokyo-sho the new list is posted, but in person, I. By the way nokyo-sho firstfruits cost was 300 yen, and the. Life time of the thoroughfare. Start from here.
