Ise Shrine Geku, Ise

Bustling with worshippers, Ise Shrine Geku represents the outer shrine of the iconic Ise-Jingu (Grand Shrine). Drawing nearly 7 million visitors each year, this shrine remains one of Japan's holiest Shinto sites and features a small edifice stripped of ornamentation and nestled among rocks and trees. A guide from the local tourist office can provide more insight and explain the history and significance of this historic site.

  • It is small compared to Uchinomiya, but it is a must see. Because the green is abundant, it is very refreshing. However, I felt the need to prepare for "What is the Outer Palace" a little.

  • You should check out the method of visiting the shrine in advance before you go. I went there in the early morning of the weekday, but it was empty. It depends on the position of the parking lot, but because it becomes the back side, a formal visit is good to walk to the front.
