Shrine

Ise Jingu

伊勢神宮

This shrine in Ise City is the Honshuji of the Jinja Honcho (Association of Shinto Shrines). Its official name is simply Jingu, and it has been familiarly called O-Ise-san since long ago. The name “Jingu” is actually used as a general term to refer to 125 jinja (shinto shrines) including the two shogu of Naiku, dedicated to Amaterasu-Omikami, and Geku, dedicated to Toyo’uke-no-Omikami as well as other betsugu (associated shrines) and setsumatsu-sha (auxiliary or subsidiary shrines). When making a pilgrimage to Ise, the official order of the pilgrimage is to enter the Naiku from the Geku. Once every 20 years the shaden (the main building of a Shinto shrine) of the Naiku, Geku and 14 other betsugu are reconstructed and the enshrined objects are transferred from the old to the new structures.
