The contrast between the sacred atmosphere of Ise Jingu / Naiku (Kotaijingu), which many Japanese people aim for once in a lifetime, and the cheerful atmosphere of Oharaimachi-Okageyokocho, which spreads out in front of the Jingu's torii gate, makes this area extremely popular.
Sarutahiko Shrine is also a wonderful shrine.
