An autumn impression from the Inner Shrine (Naikū; 内宮) at the Ise Grand Shrine (Ise Jingū; 伊勢神宮) in Mie Prefecture, Japan.
Ise Jingū is located in Ise City. It consists of two shrines: the Outer Shrine (Gekū, 外宮), which is dedicated to Toyouke, the kami of clothing, food and housing, and the Inner Shrine (Naikū, 内宮), which enshrines Amaterasu, the Sun Goddess. They are Shinto’s most sacred shrines. This photo was taken at the Inner Shrine’s Hiyoke Bridge.
