Shikinen Sengu Memorial Sengu Museum

Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum
The Shikinen Sengu Memorial Sengu Museum exhibits a variety of information about the Shikinen Sengu, a ceremony that has occurred once every 20 years since approximately 1,300 years ago. The building also serves to introduce Japan’s traditional spiritual culture surrounding its deities and functions as an archive of records about the techniques involved in the ceremony. In addition to the various exhibits, there is a break room complete with information terminals and materials that also has periodic exhibitions so one can learn in depth about Ise-jingu Shrine, the Shikinen Sengu, and Shintoism. It is located approximately 10 minutes on foot from Ujiyamada Station on the Kintetsu Toba Line.
