Shrine

This is one of Ise Jingu’s shogu and enshrines the deity Toyo’uke-no-Omikami, who provides companionship and sacred food to Amaterasu-Omikami. The official name is Toyo’ukedaijingu. Toyo’uke-no-Omikami is revered as the guardian deity of industry related to the necessities of life (food, clothing & shelter) as well as various other types of industry. In addition to the Shogu, the premises of which are covered in white gravel, is the Magatamaike Pond where there is a Kiyomori camphor tree related to Taira no Kiyomori and where Japanese iris and bloom, and the Mimaya where sacred horses were kept, as well as four betsugu (associated shrines). It is customary to worship here first before moving on to the Naiku. The closest train station is Iseshi Station.

          Spread across the eastern side of the Kii Peninsula, Mie prefecture boasts hundreds of kilometers of pretty coastline comprising the oyster-rich Toba city and Shima National Park all the way down to Kumano, a city that marks the beginning of part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, which runs into neighboring Wakayama prefecture. However, Mie is best known for the Ise Jingu Shinto shrine inland, one of the oldest and largest shrines in the country.
