Meoto Iwa are two rocks located off the coast of Ise City, Mie prefecture. They are joined together by a large sacred straw rope called a shimenawa.
On sunny days around the summer solstice, you can see scenery of miracle between Meoto Iwa, which the sun rises on top of Mount Fuji located far away.
From the ancient times, purification rituals have been performed on the beach near the rocks before visiting Ise Shrine. The Summer Solstice Festival is held at the summer solstice, where purification rituals are performed while soaking up the rising sun that shines between Meoto Iwa.
The sunrise is at 4:14 at Meoto Iwa on the summer solstice. Why not visit and see the scenery of miracle for yourself?
