Ise Jingu & Futamigaura Stayover Tour

(Mie Prefecture)


  • Two Day Tour

I will provide you the information to get to Ise Shi Station in Mie Prefecture. We need to meet there at 2:00pm.

2:15pm From there we will board a car to go to Futamigaura and stay at a local Japanese-style Inn that makes salt from the Ise inlet sea. The salt is rich in magnesium and the locals claim it cures every ailment! We will check in and walk the area where you will visit your first shrine, Futamiokitamajinja.

4:00pm These rocks are the symbol of marriage for the Shinto religion and are nicknamed ‘’the wedding rocks’’. The two rocks also represent the union of Izanagi and Izanami, the two Shinto gods responsible for the creation of the Islands of Japan.

5:00pm After that, we will head back to the Inn where you can go bathe in the salt baths, men and women are separate. The area is adorned with old Japanese homes and Inns and before dinner, if you would like to walk around and get a taste of old Japan, please do.

6:00pm We will set a time to meet in the lobby and head out to a Japanese dinner

6:00am The next morning, we will wake up early so we can watch the sunrise from the rock shrine. We will then head back for breakfast at the Inn.

8:00am We will then pack up and head to Ise Jingu. Ise Jingu is the most sacred and largest Shrine in Japan. It is split into two parts so we will spend about an hour and a half at the first spot (Geku) and then head to the second part of the Shrine (Naiku). Here I will explain all of the gods that live at the Shrine, stories and history as we walk around both Shrines. Expect to walk for about an hour and a half at each spot.

12:00pm After the second stop (Naiku) I will also take you to an amazing street in front of the Shrine filled with vendors, souveniers and best of all food!!! I will feed you and introduce you to special treats from these amazing vendors that line the road. You will have fish cake, a meat pie and we will stop at a local craft beer spot and have some beer and local fried oysters. Lastly, we will also stop at a local Japanese Sake bar and partake in Japan’s National Alcoholic Beverage!

2:00pm Done. We will then head back to the Train Station by car. Everything pretty much is included and you only need to bring a change of clothes and a few toiletries that you can carry in a backpack as we will not have a place to put luggage. You should be back to the station around 2:30pm but if you are making train reservation, I would make then closer to 3:00pm or even 3:30pm.

  • Overnight stay in a Japanese Inn
  • Visit one ocean-side shrine
  • Visit the most famous, sacred and largest Shrine in Japan (4 ~ 4.5 hours)
  • Partake in delicious food that I will introduce you to and explore the town of Oharaemachi (2 hours)
