Edo period worship route
Real visit to Ise

Visiting Ise in the Edo period

It seems that many people went back to other sightseeing spots such as Kyoto and Nara just because they were going on a trip.At that time, it was basically a walking trip, so it is said that long people traveled for about three months.

Since traveling costs money, there is a system in which ordinary people form an organization called "Ise Ko" to save money and send representatives to worship every year, and the representatives also receive the prayers for the participants of the lecture and return home. did.

It was Ise's master who was following such a travel system.I went to the lectures all over the country and received the first ear fee by putting the bills and calendars on the lectures, and when the lectures came to visit Ise, I gave a grand hospitality kagura at my own house.

When visiting Ise becomes popular, even if a servant suddenly suddenly escapes, only going to visit Ise is often allowed as a "visit".

It is a virtue to operate (give and give things) to travelers who do not have such money, and it seems that it was an era when it was easy to travel because the operations along the way were also actively carried out.
It's very forgiving.
