三重ツーリング 2

After lunch at a barbecue restaurant we visited Ise-Jingu shrine, the main shrine of the Royal family.

There were a lot of visitors. The weather was becoming worse and I thought I wouldn't take good photos of the shrine.
We didn't have enough time to visit gift shops along the Okage-Yokocho street.
We just visited the shrine and prayed for our happiness.
 Too many people on the Okage-yokocho street.

The Isuzu Riv. is running in front of the shrine.
 Water looks very clear.
The visitors must pass over the bridge which is guarded by Eishi ( soldiers for the Ise Jingu shrine ).
Leaves of trees are not colored yet.  The shrine is surrounded with the forest.
Trees are old and some trees are over a thousand years old.

We are not allowed to take a photo of the main shrine of Amaterasu the sun goddess.  Eishi are watching us.
Uji Bridge was taken away by water when typhoon hit Ise City in the last year.
They rebuilt the bridge.


 We can't take a picture of the main shrine but can take photos of other smaller shrines or buildings. Those are there from the ancient time.

After visiting the shrine we drove along the Ise-Shima-Skyline road to see landscapes but the weather became worse, we had rains and couldn't see cities or the ocean. So I didn't take any photos of the views from the mountains.
We said bye-bye to Curry san at the parking area in the mountain and drove to home.
