Japan's most sacred site rebuilt, for the 62nd time

When it comes to Shinto, Japan's indigenous religion, Ise Jingu is the most revered shrine complex of them all. Established in the 5th century in Japan's Mie prefecture, it was built in honor of Amaterasu-omikami, the sun goddess from whom the Japanese imperial family is said to be descended.

About 120 shrines make up the site, but the main ones are Naiku (inner shrine) and Geku (outer), Naiku being the most revered.
