Shikinen Sengu Memorial Sengu Museum (式年遷宮記念せんぐう館)


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.

          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.
