Sengukan serves as a kind of history museum and offers valuable insight into the process of Shinto shrine restoration.

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.

  • "Sengukan" was located near the entrance of the Ise Shrine (outer). It was a theme Museum can understand what values should learn from the conclusion that appeal to Japanese Japanese. Animals, plants or wish to develop in harmony with natural environment, all for the daily was evening twice had improperly feel the preciousness of the thing was. I can relate to in our sengû with sengu no almost once every 20 years, and can understand how wonderful something is. Did you want come and visit Museum.

  • I stopped by this sengukan bus to the Ise-Shima region. In the exhibition history associated with sengu of Ise Jingu Shrine with sengu contents has been made well devised very straightforward. Is exhibited in life-size in particular, was a magnificent hotel from column part of the ceremony, up to the roof model though. Unfortunately the hotel had banned photography. Who have not yet visited this sengukan look at the brochure or in the Internet.
