Enjoy the autumn leaves at Ise Jingu, “the spiritual home of the Japanese”

Iseshima Tourism & Convention Organization



With a history of over 2,000 years, Ise Jingu (officially called “Jingu” in Mie Prefecture) is known as “O-Ise-san,” “Daijingu-san,” and “the spiritual home of the Japanese.” Jingu is filled with holy air, has a limpid, flowing river, and is surrounded by historical forest. As a result, Jingu shows different charms in each season. As autumn deepens, Jingu is blanketed with vivid autumn leaves. The red and yellow leaves reflected on the surface of the Isuzu River at Mitarai-ba attract particular admiration from worshippers.
