  • Love this shrine and its peacefulness. There are many kami or spirit shrines to see and offer a prayer. Many Japanese pray briefly at the shrines bowing three times, clapping twice, bow one more time....  more »
  • First received a map at the entrance. Go inside you is written differently than air. I feel the aura of the trees. Famous "three stones" to come and get kazashimashou. It is a purification ceremony at the sengû location. Said power spot feel something holding hands on the stone. I do something (powan) and so feel like soar from the "don't come Popova! "And said the girl was on the opposite side when you play to the voice at the same time the same thing. I did the same experience last time. About 10 people had was each person feel. I believe I have the power. You should try it. Nokyo-sho and tomorrow is a shrine to the inner shrine. And worship from going to the adjacent sengukan more readable, it is recommended.

  • Very peaceful walking and have a beautiful pond , decent resting area.
  • It has good atmosphere and not so crowded.
  • Left luggage luggage locker of Ise-shi Station or station and tourist office, empty-handed, to visit would be better. The outer shrine and pray the Naiku. Buses are at a pace of 1 to 10 minutes. After the ceremony, overflowed with fresh air. 2017.5
