Mie Tour de Nippon in ISE & TOBAPapersky, 2015/08/08
We are now taking sign ups at firstname.lastname@example.org for Papersky’s second bicycle tour of 2015. On 9/27 (Sunday) the Tour will travel to Ise & Toba, headquarters to Japan’s most sacred gods. Ise & Toba are both located in Mie prefecture and are in abundance of all things Japanese. Some of the freshest seafood in the country can be found in the Toba area as well as women divers called Ama San who dive deep for the precious mollusca, abalone and pearls. We’ll ride from Toba to Ise, home to Ise Jingu which enshrines Japan’s most venerated deity Amaterasu, the Sun Goddess in the Inner Shrine (Naiku) and also home to Toyouke deity of clothing, food and housing,who resides in the Outer Shrine (Geku). So come and join us as we peddle through history with a cool ocean breeze and the power of the Japanese deities by our side.
