  • How can I describe it...Siren, peaceful, calming, green, solemn... I can go on and on. My all time favorite shrine.
  • This is Ise Jingu in Mie Prefecture. This ancient shrine is very important, and it even appears in Japanese mythology. Enshrined here is the sun deity, who is believed to bring bountiful harvests.
  • Beautiful place to visit. With so many tourists and locals, it takes away from its beauty.
  • 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.
  • One of the best and most famous shrines in all of Japan.
