Ise Jingu Shrine4.2
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.

Where to start. We came on news years day so it was packed. This is one of Japan's oldest and most famous shrines. Everyone knows it.
With that said, the nature is gorgeous! The buildings are well kept, partly due to the numerous donation boxes spread around the grounds. A definite recommendation!

Another display of pure Japanese culture and tradition with an incredible Use Grand shrine at the center surrounded by beautiful woodland, a very very clear river that is also worshipped and lots of other minor but important shrines.
Our experience was surreal not religious but open minded to everything especially when we saw a group of people showing their hands towards an insignificant looking small tree with a rock beside the main temple.
As we placed our hands towards the tree we felt an amazing pulsating sensation vibrating through our hands up our arms. Standing there with about 20 other people the energy was wonderful and magical.
The park area is just beautiful with massive Cyprus trees everywhere some covered with bamboo at the base others with additional bark lined with copper,very unusual but no doubt has its own meaning and purpose.
Go and enjoy a lovely walk around the main shrine and park.
Visit the river as you will see the water so clear and pure.
Walk through the ancient town and enjoy the local culture.

If it was not for the Japanese belief that you can’t just visit Geku or Naiku alone, otherwise it’ll bring bad luck to you, I’d say you could just visit Naiku if you don’t have that much time, this place is totally leveled up compared with Geku, way more grandiose, the bridge led to Naiku is very impressive, then you will enter a Japanese garden of pine trees before finding your way to the cleanse place by the beautiful river, all this enhance the believe that one is visiting a very sacred place, quite a great place to experience Japanese culture and fine architecture of transitional style.

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.

O-harai Machi has been developed as a commercial district over the years to cater to pilgrims visiting the shrine.
Most of the buildings lined on the main street have a Japanese traditional style, especially architecture style of Edo period (extending from the 17th to 19th centuries). You will enjoy the Edo period atmosphere there.
