Ise Grand Shrine

Ise Grand Shrine

Ise Grand Shrine is one of the most important Shinto shrines in Japan. To embody the teachings of death and rebirth, the shrine is rebuilt every twenty years while using traditional techniques.

Ise Grand Shrine is located in Ise City and was formally known as Kotai Jingu. It is said that the Sun Goddess Amaterasu Omikami is enshrined in the Inner Shrine. This makes the Ise Grand Shrine one of the most important Shinto shrines in Japan. The main buildings are designed to resemble rice granaries because the establishment predates the introduction of Buddhist architecture to Japan. According to Shinto tradition, both the inner and outer shrines are rebuilt every 20 years from scratch. The next time it will be rebuilt is in 2033.

It is said that the first Inner Shrine was built over 2000 years ago. It takes about 60-90 minutes to reach the Inner Shrine from the Uji Bridge. The two bridges are made out of the former pillars of the Shinto structures. Visitors have an opportunity to purify themselves using the sacred water of the Isuzugawa River. The main sanctuary is located at the top of some stone steps. Beyond that is the main hall where the Sun Goddess is enshrined. It can be identified by the multiple sets of fences and please that photography is not allowed past a certain point. There are many structures to visit around the grounds like the Kaguraden and Aramatsurinomiya.
