November 25, 2012 - A Visit to Ise Jingu

Hi Everybody

last weekend we went to Ise Jingu in Mie Prefecture where the famous Shinto Shrines are located. First we went to the Geku area which can be reached easily by walking from the Iseshi station. It was a quiet place surrounded by forest. The main sanctuary is reconstructed on a regular basis every 20 years.
After that we went to Naiku, which seemed to be more popular. As we were waiting in line to see the main sanctuary (Kotaijingu) the guards cleared the road for a delegation of Shinto-Priests appeared for a ceremony.
Returning from Naiku there is also a nice shopping street.
