  • Tour Details

1. Visit both the Naiku and Geku of Ise Jingu, a shrine loved by Japanese people. Ise Jingu is said to be the most sacred spot in the Shinto religion. Here, learn about Japanese mythology, culture, and more with easy-to-follow explanations from an English-speaking National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter.
2. Enjoy comfortable transportation with reserved seats on the limited express train for the round trip from Nagoya. With a National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter by your side there's no worry about getting lost, so enjoy worry-free sightseeing. Participants who plan to stay in Ise, Shima, or Toba on the day following the tour may leave the tour midway.
3. Both the Geku and Sengukan will be toured. Learn all about the soul of Ise Jingu, including exhibits on how the divine treasures are made, a model of the Ise Jingu buildings, and videos.
4. Step through the torii gate that guards the Naiku and enter a different world. World leaders visited this spot during the 2016 G7 Ise-Shima Summit. Experience the Naiku's unique atmosphere which features towering trees and the murmuring of a river.
5. Also enjoy a walk around Okage Yokocho, the side street area at the gate to the Naiku where over 60 shops recreate an old fashioned atmosphere. Try some of the local food such as Ise udon noodles.

[Exemptions/Itinerary Guarantee: Itinerary/Destinations]
This tour uses reserved seating on Kintetsu limited express trains for the round trip from Nagoya. Participants who wish may leave the tour midway in Ise. This is convenient for those with plans to stay in Matsusaka, Toba, Shima, or Kashikojima. A pass good for 3 days including the tour date usable for unrestricted travel on trains between Matsusaka and Kashikojima and for designated Ise area bus routes will be handed out. However, you must complete procedures on your own if taking a reserved seat limited express train for the return trip to Nagoya. If alighting in an area outside of the applicable zone, the trip will be deemed complete and the pass will be collected, so please be aware of this when using it. If you wish to leave the tour midway, please tell the National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter when meeting for the tour. In this case, participants must sign a form stating they will leave partway through. Refunds for the pass will not be issued even if it is not used after leaving the tour midway. If the Kintetsu Limited Express train reserved seats are sold out, or if the train service is interrupted or suspended, alternative transportation may be provided via JR or other service, or via non-reserved seating. In such cases, arrival time to the destination may be greatly delayed. Refunds will not be issued, and additional payment will not be required in such cases. Transportation around the Ise Jingu area will be by route bus, so participants may be unable to sit down. Depending on customers' walking speeds sightseeing may take more time than planned. As Ise Jingu is the site of many ceremonies throughout the year, restrictions may be placed on visiting without prior notice. Thank you for your understanding. Times listed on the itinerary are estimates only. The order of the itinerary and arrival times may differ depending on public transportation, road conditions, and congestion at destinations. If making plans for before or after the tour, please leave enough time in your schedule.
