If you love Japanese shrines, this is a must go. Ise Jingu is often compared to Izumo Taisha, while I think Izuamo Taisha is a lot more beautiful, Ise Jingu is a lot easier to get to from other major cities in Japan.

This is a place you enjoy most when you know the history and tradition. Luckily, we had an excellent guide who could explain the origin of the shrine and how to pray at each place. Would be crowded around New Years celebration.
