Overview

I will provide you with the information on how to get to Ise Shi Station in Mie Prefecture. We need to meet there at 9:00 am.

We will then pack up and head to Ise Jingu. Ise Jingu is the most sacred and largest Shrine in Japan. It is split into two (02) parts so we will spend about an hour and a half at the first spot and give you the information on the God that resides there; this place is called GEKU (Geku - Approx. one and one half hour walk)

We will then proceed to the second part of the Shrine and give you the information on the Goddess that resides there; this place is called NAIKU (Naiku - Approx. one and one half hour walk). Here I will also explain all of the gods that live at the Shrine, stories and history as we walk around both Shrines.

After the second stop (Naiku) I will also take you to an amazing street in front of the Shrine filled with vendors, souvenirs and best of all food!!! I will feed you and introduce you to special treats from these amazing vendors that line the road. You can have fishcake, a tasty steamed pie with a meat filling and we will stop at a local craft beer spot and have some beer and local-caught, fried oysters. Lastly, we will also stop at a local Japanese Sake Bar and partake in Japan’s National Alcoholic Beverage!

Done. We will then head back to the Train Station by car. You should be back at the station around 2:30 pm but if you are making train reservation, I would make it closer to 3:00 pm or even 3:30 pm in case we get caught up somewhere.
