Sarutahiko Shrine (猿田彦神社)

Sarutahiko Shrine is a Shinto shrine dedicated to Sarutahiko Okami. It is recorded in the ancient Kojiki and Nihon shoki that the great god Sarutahiko Okami guides everything towards the best state. According to legend, after guiding Amaterasu’s grandson to Takachiho, he married Ame-no-Uzume-no-Mikoto. He then chose to reside in Ise and from there guided the development of the nation. A shrine known as the Sarume Shrine, dedicated to Ame-no-Uzume-no-Mikoto, is located on the shrine grounds. When the sun goddess Amaterasu Omikami hid herself in a cave, she was persuaded to come out again after a kagura performance of song and dance by Ame-no-Uzume-no-Mikoto. Accordingly, she is worshiped as the goddess of the performing arts.

          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.
