Naiku is officially called Koutaijingu.
The deity is Amaterasu Omikami, the ancestral deity of the imperial family and is revered as the general deity of the Japanese people.
Amaterasu Omikami is likened to the sun and was enshrined here about XNUMX years ago.
WHen you clean your hands at the Isuzu River Mitarashi and walk through the Jingu's woods, you will be surrounded by the solemn atmosphere of Ise Jingu.
At the winter solstice, you can see the beautiful scenery of the rising sun from the Torii gate of Uji Bridge.
Within the shrine area, there are the Aramatsurinomiya shrine and Kazahinominomiya shrie, which are the second highest-ranked annexes after the main shrine(Betsugu).
Aramatsurinomiya enshrines the Aramitama, which is a positive aspect of Amaterasu Omikami.
Kazahinnominomiya enshrines the deities who control the wind and rain, Shinatsuhiko-no-Mikoto and Shinatobe-no-Mikoto.
Please visit Betsugu as well as Syougu(the main shrine).
