Ise Jingu in western Japan is the most venerated Shinto sanctuary of great spiritual and historical significance. It attracts more than 8 million worshippers every year. This sacred shrine consists of 125 shrine centering on the two main sanctuaries: naiku, or inner shrine, and Geku, or outer shrine. Inner shrine is dedicated to Amaterasu Omikakmi, the supreme goddess shining like the sun, who is the ancestral deity of the Japanese Imperial family. Geku is dedicated to Toyouke Omikakmi, the deity who offers sacred food to the supreme goddess.
Main shrine is rebuilt once every 20 years for the deity to move from old shrine to new shrine, called "shikinensengu." A visit to shrine is called "Oisemairi" or "Okagemairi." It is very popular for Japanese people during the Edo period.
There are two retro-inspired streets such as Oharai Yokocho and Okage Yokocho near Ujibashi. Akafuku mochi are soft cakes covered with sweet bean paste and local popular sweets. Ise udon is also a popular thick noodle dipped in the richly textured black soup.
For you reference, we stay in Ise Jingu Shrine for 5 hours because the around-trip time between Osaka and Ise is 3 hours.

Hideo is a great guide. His English is good and he knows the site and sites well. He also moves quickly so you get to see a lot. Using trains and buses you also get a feel for the city. We walked about 10 mines during the day but with the stops etc. it did not feel difficult. I was very pleased with Hideo.
We love Mr Hideo so much. We are family of 12 and he was able to managed us very well with his prepared tour itinerary. He picked us up from our apartment and guide us all the way through the scenic spots using local trains. Highly recommended! Thank you so much Mr Hideo :)
We had two separate tours with Hideo. One for a full day to Osaka and another to Hiroshima. Hideo is very thorough in his planning and well-organized. He plans everything in detail but at the same time is very flexible according to our interests. He gave us good advice and ideas while proposing the itinerary. He is punctual and knows the cities well. He is also humble and patient and very hardworking. Thank you Hideo for bringing us around!
Hideo is a pleasant man, very knowledgeable as you would expect of a private tour guide, and ultimately made our Kyoto stay every memorable. We had a great time visiting the must see places as we only spent 3 days 2 nights there, so we decided to make the most of the with Hideo. We'll be back to Japan again and we'll be sure to book with Hideo once more!
We spent 5 enjoyable days with Hideo in Osaka and Kyoto. He was well organised, puntual, patient and flexible with our plans. He was particularly kind to assist us in any way we required, and was a pleasure to get to know during our stay in these two cities. A big thank you, again!
