ISE Shrine Tour for HATSUMODE
Ise Shrine is the highest ranking shrine in Japan.
It tries to preseve the original shinto way of thinking and praying.  It is famous for Hatsumode, the first visit to the shrine in January.  It is built in a natural setting so, your visit to Ise Shrine involves walking past Isuzu river through tall evergreens. The shrines are rebuilt every 25 years, so they are very new. Even today, Japanese come from all over to visit the shrine.

-*- Participant's comment!
 I have been going to Ise Shrine since spring of '98.Rabbit
 I definitely recommend at least one visit to Ise, during your stay in Japan.
 It's a wonderful place to visit for a sense of inner cleansing, re-energizing and
 a feeling of peace.
 The energy there feels like pure, clear and white light.
 Spend time meditating at the river and at Naigu shrine, feel the energ while you are there.
