The surrounding forest is very relaxing. It is a good place to have a walk. There is no entrance fee. The place itself is said to be powerful power spot.

Not sure why I thought that this place would be amazing... It was lots of wide strolling lanes and there were many buildings, but you couldn't take pictures or really see anything because of how they roped everything off. The wood bridge you cross to go to it was very cool, and I think I would have had more fun playing in the cool river than I did getting to the shrine. I know it has history, but I'd give this a pass.

Beautiful but very busy. It rained suddenly and cleared up a lot of the crowds. This made it much more peaceful for those of us that had brought umbrellas

i travelled all over Japan for a month and this place was the highlight for me. my family and i went as a family reunion and the setting of the temperate humid forest and mountains with Buddhist shrines were exquisite. easily my favorite memory to date. if you go, please be aware of Japanese traditions as it is a holy place and look at other's behavior as a marker on how to act at the shrine. bring lots of change for offerings!
if you're looking for a tourist destination, this isnt it. this is a place of worship, not of learning or anything. great photo ops but not much else. no translators or support for non Japanese speakers.
bus system is often packed/busy and kinda costs a lot. :(

One of the best and most famous shrines in all of Japan. This was my third time visiting Ise Shrine. First in 2012, then 2017 and now in 2019. It is as beautiful as ever.
