"Ise Jingu(Ise Shrine) is the shinto shrine that the Japanese adore as "Soul of Japan". Located in Ise city, Mie Prefecture, Japan."
After a 3 hour train ride from Tokyo, you'll find yourself in another rural part of Japan. Only this time, you'll find yourself in walking distance to one of the most sacred shrines in the country and delicious meals like the "Ise Udon" and the crispy soft eel bowls ("Unaju").
My father says the beauty of Ise is its proximity to the mountain and the sea. You go a few km in one direction and you reach the beautiful ocean (and pearls) ☺️. You go the other way and you see an overwhelming amount of mountains.
