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.
