The nationally registered tangible cultural property building built in XNUMX is worth a visit!There is a guest room which the Emperor and the Prime Minister of Japan use when they come to Ise(but not open to public). they get off the train at this station to go to Ise Jingu.
It takes only about XNUMX minutes from Kintetsu Iseshi Station to Kintetsu Ujiyamada Station, though both are limited express stations.It seems strange to tourists that there are two stations so close together.
For Kintetsu users, it is recommended to get off at Iseshi Station, which is close to the Geku, and then board at Ujiyamada Station, where they can easily buy souvenirs.
Iseshi Station has a joint ticket gate for JR and Kintetsu.Both tickets can be used to enter from either ticket gate.
There are many shops along the Geku Sando street that are attractive to those who come to Ise.You can also enjoy Ise specialties such as the famous Ise udon and local beer.
Ise Kikuichi, Which is in the middle of the street, is a knife shop, but also has an information cener's function. The Geku-mae Tourist Information Center in front of Geku has a function of baggage storage, and rental bicycles are also available there.
Since the Jingu area is a gravel road, it is convenient for those who are traveling with a carry bag to leave it at the Geku-mae Tourist Information Center during worshiping and to pick it up before going ahead to the Naiku.
There are many restaurants for locals around the station, but they are not as concentrated as in big cities, so we prepare a meal map for tourists.You can browse it on this website or get it at tourist information centers.
Officially called Toyoukedaijingu, it is one of the two Goshogu shrines consisting of 125 shrines.The deity of food and industry, Toyouke-no-oomikami, is enshrined.As the deity who controls the meals of Amaterasu Omikami in Ise Jingu/Naiku (Kotai Jingu), she was enshrined here about XNUMX years ago.The ritual"Higoto-asayuu-oomike-sai", in which meals are offered to the deities such as Amaterasu Omikami, is held twice a day without fail.
There are also Taka-no-miya, Tsuchi-no-miya, and Kaze-no-miya, which are the second highest-ranked annexes after the main shrine in the palace area, so be sure to visit the annex.
It is a museum that introduces "Shikinen Sengu" the ceremony of the Ise Jingu Shrine.About the ritual of "Shikinen Sengu", the process of preparing the deity's costume, deity's treasure served by the first-class masters of the present generation is exhibited, and you can learn about the ceremony of" Shikinen Sengu" firmly.The full-scale model of a part of the Goshoden, which cannot be seen nearby, is overwhelming.
The exhibition guide in Exhibition Room XNUMX is basically held every day, so please listen and learn.At the Jingu Museum "Choko-kan", which is located separately, you can see the real thing of the deity's costume and treasures.This is also a place I definitely want to visit.
The Iseshi station shopping arcade is just a short walk from the JR Iseshi station exit.The Geku Sando is famous for tourists from outside the prefecture, but The Iseshi station shopping arcade is full of shops loved by the locals.After visiting the Geku, please come not only to the Geku Sando but also to the Iseshi station shopping arcade.
