Sengukan, Ise
(4.5/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our custom trip planner, Ise attractions like Sengukan can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Admission fee is 300 yen. You can see from the front of his dynasty in its actual size. Very impressive. Images to other historical exhibits of the new treasure find. Watch carefully and takes 2 hours.

  •  Should be whenever I go to ISE. And you should hear the geku Seiden full-scale model exhibition guide.  According to the website below to guide is.  ♦ timetable (journey time: approximately 10 minutes) 1) 10: 00 2) 11: 00 3) 12: 00 4) 13: 00 5) 14: 00 6) 15:00 I heard the Guide 10. That has become a thatched roof is 20 years to repair without thickness. 鰹木 is at the top of the roof is enshrines Toyouke Omikami can listen to interesting even (10 pieces), odd (nine), inner shrine. By the way, watch the Moonlight was 鰹木 and the Temple of the five, six Japanese Princess Palace.  More fun not only to pray and see the buildings. Inside the sengukan is too bad photo cannot be taken.
