Overview of Mie

“The Prefecture of Rebirth.”

The coastal prefecture of Mie is the birthplace of the ninja and of renowned Japanese poet, Matsuo Basho, widely considered to be the greatest haiku poet of all time. Mie is also the home of Ise Grand Shrine, a sacred place dedicated to the goddess, Amaterasu, Japan’s creator according to Japanese mythology. While around 2,000 years old, the shrine is rebuilt every 20 years to represent continual renewal. Mie is also known for rock structures called Meoto Iwa, literally “married rocks.”
