The main area of yet another shrine is blocked from view. So what point to advertise it as an attraction? An unpleasant looking Shinto priest was glowering at me from under his black hat. Not worth braving the heat and humidity to see tops of...More

Sacred temple and taking photographs are not allowed inside the main shrine. The Ise Jingu Shrine is small and accessible by climbing the steps up. There are other bigger temples within the area. Lovely Japanese gardens and there's a reception hall for tourists.

Ise Jingu is the most popular Shinto shrine in Japan. It is well worth a visit. The Japanese visit this shrine with deep respect and devotion. It honors nature ANC the harvest, especially the rice harvest.

Not much else to say other than the grounds and the temple are beautifully maintained. There is a peaceful feeling here that obviously comes with it being an active spiritual centre for the Japanese

Wanted to visit this renowned mother of shrines and was not let down. It is located in a forest and absolutely good walk around the area. Was the site for G7 too. Be prepared to spend about an hour easily as you enjoy the grounds....More

This shrine was the perfect little oasis. It was surrounded by trees and water making it feel isolated from the world. It was an easy walk to the different structures that took about an hour. The architecture and colors were very different from other shrines...More
