#1 of 54 in Museums in Mie Prefecture
History Museum Museum
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.
