  • I visited Ise Jingu Shrine outer shrine visits after that. This is where are also discussed with sengu history and traditions. Are equipped with a full-sized model of the main buildings that can not see is usually so overwhelmed by their appearance. Also heard that diorama of the whole outer shrine, to build it for just the master carpenter of the Carpenter has completed starting from tool making, I was impressed.
