Tsukiyominomiya is famous as the hidden spiritual hot spot of Ise Jingu. It is located near the inner shrine (Naiku). Within Tsukiyominomiya there are 4 shrines that are dedicated to deities Tsukiyomi-no-mikoto (god of the moon and brother of the sun goddess), Tsukiyomi-no-mikoto-no-aramitama (soul of power), Izanami and Izanagi (the mother and father gods of all other gods in Japanese mythology).

These 4 shrines are meant to be visited in a specific order, so be sure to follow the instructions. First you start with one dedicated to Tsukiyomi-no-mikoto, then proceed to Tsukiyomi-no-mikoto-no-aramitama, then to Izanagi’s shrine, and then lastly to Izanami’s shrine.
