Winter solstice dedication event

Winter Solstice Dedication/Sunrise from Uji Bridge (Ise Grand Shrine Naiku)

In keeping with the winter solstice custom of praying for good health, officials from the Ise City Tourism Association will hold a winter solstice dedication event in which pumpkins and yuzu are offered.

On that day, you can see the beautiful sight of the sun rising from the torii gate of Uji Bridge.
The sun only rises from the front center of the torii gate a few days before and after the winter solstice.

Please take a look at this mysterious sight.
