Naiku Shrine, Ise
"Time for tradition"
There is a street of traditional houses on the way to Naiku.
"Set your mind"
If you follow a steady stream of people you can`t miss a large torii gate anouncing the vicinity of Shinto shrine.
"Wash your hands..."
... and purify your body...
"Stop at Mitarashi..."
...and purify your soul.
"At peace with all world..."
On the way to Naiku, the most sacred shrine in all Japan, you`ll pass hall for special prayers called Kaguraden. Ceremonies are performed by Shinto priests but you are free to pay your individual respect.
"Main sanctuary building"
... is enclosed by four fences. You can approach only the first one.
The most sacred building has the same shape as it had 2000 years ago.
