  • 50 isuzugawa station-9 minutes by bus from the Naiku. In 20 minutes from the bustling Oharai Town take a stroll along Sarutahiko shrine. From there bus at half moon's shrine. And walk, 50 isuzugawa station in 8 minutes. In addition, 50 isuzugawa station by bus in four minutes WA Princess Palace from. Until the time of the train, adjust the time with this course work. By the way this course duration is 6. It was five hours. And none so far 50 Bell station is a quiet station not only drinking water vending machine, buy souvenirs, etc.

  • 第一次來三重, 唯一的景點, 就是神宮, 那裡氣氛莊重, 日本人每次到達鳥居, 都一定先行禮才過, 神宮沒有豪華裝飾, 大家都是帶著敬重的心而來, 感受到的, 比看到更多

  • 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.
