For a long time I had the plan to visit the most important Shinto Shrine in Japan called Ise Grand Shrine (Ise-jingu). Finally during my stay in the Mie Prefecture I had the chance to explore this amazing place. The shrine covers a large area and I saw this huge cedar tree during one of my walks. If you want to discover the religious heart of the country come here and absorb this unique atmosphere.
