Recommended spots for sunrise and moonrise in Ise-Shima include Meoto-iwa rocks at Futami Okitama Shrine, Asama summit observatory, and Ise-jingu Naiku Uji Bridge.Along with introducing each spot, we will also introduce recommended shooting times.

Meoto Iwa (Married Couple Rocks)

The two rocks on the Futamiura coast are called "couple rocks" because they are close to each other like a married couple.
The Meoto-iwa rocks are located at Futami Okitama Shrine, which is a shrine that offers blessings such as road opening, purification, marriage, and marital harmony.
Every year on May 5th, September 5th, and mid-December Saturdays, the Daishimenawahari Shinji ritual, in which the shimenawa that connects the two rocks of the Meotoiwa Rocks is replaced, is held.

The sunrise from the Meoto-iwa rocks can be seen from May to July, and the sunrise between the Meoto-iwa rocks illuminates the rocks and the sea divinely.If the time is right, you can take pictures of the Meoto-iwa rocks illuminated by the sun for posting on social media.
The shooting spot of the aim is around the Gihoju (second from the right facing the sea) of Fujimi Bridge in the precincts.

During the summer solstice, depending on the weather, you may be able to see Mt. Fuji, so it is important to check the weather in Ise-Shima and Shizuoka Prefecture in advance in order to see the sunrise and Mt. Fuji together.
There is a festival on the day of the summer solstice, and there is a high possibility that the precincts will be crowded on that day, so we recommend a week before or after the sunrise to see the sunrise.

Meotoiwa Moonrise

The 10 full moon nights between October and January are the best times to enjoy the moonrise over Meotoiwa. You can enjoy the fantastic scenery of Meotoiwa.
Its mysterious and memorable scenery attracts many worshipers and photographers from all over the country.When shooting, it is not possible to secure a spot in advance with a tripod, etc., so it is important to arrive early when taking pictures of the beautiful moonrise.
