Isuzugawa River Mitarashi五十鈴川 御手洗場


Located on the premises of Ise Jingu’s Naiku (Kotaijingu) in Ise City, this is a place to purify one’s entire body and soul before worshipping at the shrine. The stone-paved Mitarashi constructed on the banks of the Isuzugawa River is said to have been donated by Tokugawa Tsunayoshi’s mother Keishouin. The temizusha (ablution front) also serves the same purpose in allowing worshippers to cleanse their hands in the clean, streaming waters of the Isuzugawa River and purify themselves.

          Mie Main Areas


          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.
