A History Run in Ise City 伊勢市の歴史ラン

According to the Association of Shinto Shrines, the most revered shrine in Japan is Ise Jingū. Unsurprisingly, Ise City is probably best known as a destination for pilgrims visiting the shrine. However, Ise has a lot of other religious spaces that are not directly related to the Jingū shrine complex.

My watch tells me that my heart rate was lower while I was running than it was when I was rushing around getting ready for work afterwards, so I think I need to put a bit more effort into my training! Today we went on a historical run (Kōgakkan University post here) through a few sites related in some way to these religious denominations:

Soka Gakkai (SGI) 創価学会、Ōmotokyō 大本教(合気道道場)、Nichiren Buddhism 日蓮宗(誓願の井戸)、Tenrikyō 天理教、Shingon Buddhism 真言宗(赤門寺正寿院–now Pure Land)、True Pure Land Buddhism 浄土真宗(西本願寺伊勢教堂)、”Sukyo Mahikari” (True Light) 宗教真光、and Pure Land Buddhism 浄土宗(本誓寺).
