The Holy Shinto Shrine Ise Jingu
A closer look at the atmosphere around the shrine
Ise Jingu in Ise City is the most sacred Shinto shrine in Japan. Last year (2013) the famous Shikinen Sengu ceremony was held again, when the shrine is completely rebuilt, every twenty years. However, it is not all about the shrine buildings; pilgrimage has always played an important role in this area and eating and drinking on the way was important. So just like in the past, having some food before approaching or after visiting the grand shrine is indispensable. The famous dishes here are Akafuku (mochi covered in sweet red bean paste) and Ise Udon (udon soaked in soy-based sauce).
