We saw a ‘free tour guide’ sign at Ise City Tourist Information Center across from the entrance of Gekū and decided to go for it. It was the best decision ever. I’d recommend it to all Japanese speakers who are visiting Gekū for the first...More
Ise is home to the Ise Shrines (Ise Jingu), Japan's most sacred Shinto shrines. 伊勢神宮is actually a large number of Shinto shrines centered on two main shrines, Naikū (内宮) and Gekū (外宮).
The Geku (also officially known as "Toyouke Daijingū") or 外宮 is just near...More
The one that is nearest to the train station, being a near bus ride away, this provides a good start to the shrines in the locale. Get the bus pass as the various shrines and areas of interest are located some distance away from each...More

The second major stop on our epic two-week Iseji Kumano Kodo hike, Geku Shrine is every bit as serene and gorgeous as its counterpart.

Thanks a lot Daniel. I guess I can walk to Toba station and take the Kintetsu Line to Iseshi and then take a short walk from station to Geku. From Geku is it a short walk to the nearby ancient town Yochoko, After the ancient town, we plan to visit Naiku and Oharai Machi. I read that Naiku has more to see than Geku?
