Among the sanctum has received many coverages from overseas, I easily introduce it with some photos of inside.

Regardless of the ancient religion, shrine gets quite popular as one of the sightseeing spot among overseas these days.

Just one thing to remember before visiting

Ise Jingu mainly consists of two parts called ‘Naiku (内宮)’ and ‘Geku (外宮)’, and you should visit to Geku at first ahead of Naiku as a formal procedure.
But if you don’t have enough time in your stay, that’s OK to visit to only Naiku because it’s not strict much on welcomed visitors.
