Sengukan, Ise

4.4
Sengukan serves as a kind of history museum and offers valuable insight into the process of Shinto shrine restoration. Surrounded by a lake and thick forest, the house exudes tranquility and invites you to discover the ancient tradition of sengu, the removal of a resident deity to a temporary shrine while its "home" undergoes reconstruction. Large models, displays, and audiovisual equipment explain how shrines are restored. Pick up an English-language audio guide before you begin a walk around this attraction.

  • Geku omote-Sando. The Museum was made to commemorate the shikinen sengû, using exhibits and video of the ceremony goes as is. Wi-Fi is also the resting place.

  • To the outer palace of the god of Eli, I think it's hard not to notice this piece, a beautiful pond, and the elegant building on which it is situated, is the Museum of the outer palace, and it is a pity that because of the damage caused by the typhoon wind, it is impossible for me to make an interview without opening the museum. The only thing open is a small lounge, you can look at the pond and stage, but there is no way outside, across the glass, always feel not true, if you want to visit the best attention to official information.

  • It is a museum located in the outer shrine of Ise Jingu Shrine Ise-shi Station on. Put in the free, full-sized model of the sanctuary in attractions.
