Alla scoperta della città più sacra del Giappone

Persa nel mezzo della prefettura di Mie, Ise irradia attraverso la sua aura misteriosa. Culla della dea del sole Amaterasu, questa piccola cittadina di campagna ospita Ise-Shingu, il santuario più sacro del Giappone. Edo, Ise è anche un'importante città culturale nel regione. Con la sua storia e la sua geografia, accoglie ogni anno migliaia di visitatori, desiderosi di svelare tutti i suoi misteri.

The birthplace of the goddess Amaterasu

Perhaps the most well-established attraction in Ise City is the famous Ise-Jingu Shrine. Arguably the most significant Shinto grand shrine in all of Japan, it was initially erected in honor of Amaterasu, the sun goddess attached to the imperial family, all the way back in the year 4 B.C.E. The religious complex consists of 125 smaller shrines and is said to be "the soul of Japan."

Go through the Uji Bridge to access the Naiku Shrine, the birthplace of the goddess Amaterasu. Ancient visitors believed its wooden construction would wash away their sins from those who pass through it.

The most prized shrine in the country, the Naiku is said to house the yatano kagami mirror, one of the three sacred relics of Japan, and was used to bring Amaterasu out of the cave in which she had been hiding following a violent argument with her brother Susanoo, the god of storms.

One of the other crown jewels for scenery in Ise, however, is Mount Asamagatake, elevated above the city and presenting an all-encompassing view of the region. The previously mentioned rich forests and glistening blue waters become one giant landscape from the mountain, which is a popular hiking destination. Historically, the ascent up the mountain was done by pilgrims prior to visiting Ise Jingu. The total journey up and down Mount Asamagatake takes around 4-5 hours.

A city built on artisanal craft

As a UNESCO-recognized city, the culture of traditional artisanal crafts is almost unparalleled in Ise. These crafts span from local specialties to world-recognized luxury items.

Al suo interno, la via dello shoppingOkage-Yokocho  permette di scoprire le specialità locali . Udon, manzo Matsusaka, o abalone pescato dall'ama della cittadina vicina, gli innumerevoli ristoranti della zona cucinano da secoli ottime ricette .

Soprattutto per quanto riguarda il tè e il wagashi , poiché Ise è il terzo produttore di tè del Paese . Da lì è nato anche l' kafuku , un mochi ripieno di pasta di fagioli rossi inventato in una delle sale da tè della città nel XVIII secolo.

Oltre ai suoi ristoranti, caffè e bancarelle, Okage-Yokocho ha molti negozi di souvenir . Miele fatto in casa, ceramiche e portafortuna, la strada mette sotto i riflettori l'artigianato di Ise!

Specialmente ogni primo del mese durante Tsuitachi Mairi , il primo pellegrinaggio mensile, quando i negozi aprono molto presto per offrire cose nuove ai coraggiosi che vengono a Oharai-machi dopo il loro ritorno da Ise-jingu.

Futami Onsen: Relaxation amongst natural beauty

Futami Onsen is a premier destination in Ise, home to some of the most amazing scenery in all of Japan, centered around warm and relaxing onsen hot springs with luxurious accommodations. 

The most famous landmark at Futami is Meoto Iwa, or “the wedded rocks.” The two holy stones are connected by a rope structure known as a shimenawa. The two rocks represent the connection between two of Shinto’s most significant deities: Izanami and Izanagi, the mother and father of Japan within the Shinto mythos. On clear mornings, the sun can be seen rising between the two rocks, encompassing much of the most emblematic features of the Japanese archipelago into one scene. The beaches in the area are also lauded, making them popular with both those who wish to take the time to relax and those who wish to indulge in nature.
