Ise shrine, a majority of space is forest.

Around of the Japanese shrine is forest.

We call this forest “Chinju-no-mori”

When you arrive there,

you have to wash your hands.

It is oblation the Sake for God.

Japanese Gods are drinker.

 

 

I through the forest and arrived the main shrine building.

Many people were praying for New Year.

There is vacant land next of the main shrine building.

Why?

All buildings in this shrine has vacant land on next to it.

Ise Shrine has important event,

that name is “Shikinen-sengu” (式年遷宮)

All building in Ise Shrine rebuild in every 20 years.

Also to renew costume, stationery, harness, sword etc.

And Gods move the new building.

In the religious sense, there is a meaning of reincarnation and regeneration.

More important meaning is that they are keeping the Shinto custom

and technique of architectural Styles and Craft more than 1000 years.
