Meotoiwa, Ise

(420+ reviews on the web)
Marina
Admire the shape and learn the legend of Meotoiwa, a sacred geological feature. The two rocks jut out from the ocean--the larger representing the husband, and the smaller his wife--with the relationship between the two taking on a spiritual quality in the beliefs of worshippers at the local Shinto shrine. Joined by a heavy "shimenawa" rope (a rice straw rope used in Shinto rituals), the rocks form a striking shape just off from the coast. To visit Meotoiwa on your holiday in Ise, and find out what else Ise has to offer, use our Ise vacation trip planner.

  • Whenever I visited little rock, said people are still imposing landmarks. The thickness of the rope is an overwhelming presence. And the weather is good, at the top of the rock was trailing his blue rock thrush is even loud.

  • Because the weather is cloudy, nice sea couldn't. On the coastline, increase the field of view. Would be nice. Vermillion book with interest, and I have also now just so people know I'm there have just gone saw it. There was a full moon and Sunrise 2. Those who are interested take a look at.

  • Parked and walk to the rocks where it is, but on the way waves and approaches until the last minute, a little nervous. I think the atmosphere is quite different depending on the weather.
