Ise Shrine

The Ise Jingu consists of two shrines: the Outer Shrine (Geku), which is dedicated to Toyouke, the Shinto deity of clothing, food and housing, and the Inner Shrine (Naiku), which enshrines the most venerated deity Amaterasu, the Sun Goddess. They are Shinto's most sacred shrines.
Naiku and Geku are located several kilometers apart from each other at the foot of densely wooded hills. Unlike most other Shinto shrines, the Ise Shrines are built in a purely Japanese architecture style which shows almost no influence from the Asian mainland. Naiku is believed to have been established in the 3rd century and Geku in the 5th century.

There are many temples still keep the original shape and precept since the period when the Samura Spirits was born. Kamakura temples are the real witness of the long and rich history especially with Samurai.
Kamakura is not the city where has many temples , it is where the real Samurai Spirits exist in those temples. There are Hokokuji Temple, Enkakuji Enkakuji, Myohonji Enkakuji etc. in Kamakura.
