Ise Shrine Music

Ise Shrine Shinto Music.

Ise Jingu in Mie Prefecture is Japan's most sacred shrine dating back to the 3rd century.

Ise Shrine actually consists of two shrines: Geku and Naiku. Geku, which dates from the 5th century enshrines the Shinto goddess of clothing, food and housing - Toyouke Omikami.
Naiku, which is two hundred years older, enshrines Amaterasu-Omikami, the sun goddess, the guardian of the nation and the protector of the Imperial family.
