Ise Grand Shrine Reviews
文句なしの「神宮」。江戸時代の人たちの気持ちがよくわかります。いくつも神社があり、回るのが大変ですが、パワーを感じなから歩くのは気持ちがよいですね。 more »There is no complaints about the Shrine. I understand the feelings of the people of the Edo period well. There are many shrines, and it is hard to go around, but it is pleasant to walk because I feel power.
據說是日本人一生一定要去一次的神社，有分內宮和外宮。內宮可由伊勢市車站或宇治山田車站搭公車過去，大推薦內宮，一定要去。外宮可由伊勢市車站步行前往，走路約10分鐘可到。 more »It is a shrine that the Japanese must go once in their lives, with their internal and foreign affairs. Inside can be taken by The City Station or Yuji Yamada Station, push the inside, be sure to go. The outside walk is within walking distance of The City Station and 10 minutes' walk away.
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!
Literally the way of the gods ! Great place both or tourists and spiritual people.....
