Sarutahiko, the main deity worshiped in this shrhine played an important role for Isejingu shrine.
According to Japanese mythology, ‘Sarutahiko’ welcomed and guided Amaterasu (the main God enshrined in Isejingu) to Ise, and also offered his land area to Amaterasu.

Therefore faithful visitors go to greet Sarutahiko-jinja, before going to Isejingu.

The subsidiary shrine, ‘Sarume-jinja’ located in the same precinct is also attractive. This shrine enshrines Sarutahiko’s wife, Sarume-no-kimi (or also called, ‘Ama-uzume’). She is worshiped as the Goddess of dancing, entertainment, arts etc. So many actors and actress visit this shrine.


In May: Rice planting ceremony
In August: Sarume-jinja lantern festival
Many domestic and abroad worshippers offer red paper lanterns, to express their appreciation to Sarume-no-kimi.

Among around 80,000 shrines throughout Japan, Ise Jingu on the north side of Shima Peninsula is considered the most sacred. Interestingly, the shrine buildings have been replaced every 20 years according to Shinto tradition in the past 1300 years. In the time of replacement, which most recently took place in 2013, a new set is built on an empty lot next the current one.

The Ise Jingu is comprised of two shrines located several kilometers apart - Kotai Jungu (inner shrine) and Toyouke Daijingu (outer shrine), the former dedicated to the sun goddess and the latter the goddess of agriculture and industry. The main hall, the innermost building, is so sacred that it is only accessed by priests and the Imperial family. The whole architecture retains the purely Japanese style prior to the arrival of Buddhist influence.

Mystery of Isejingu shrine --- Don't step on this stone!
Do you know this stone? It is located on the pathway behind the main inner shrine building.
According to the Ise legend, this stone was fallen from the heaven in ancient days, and considered very sacred. So local people never step on this stone.
