Visiting the most sacred shrine in Japan, the Ise Jingu in Mie Prefecture


In Japan, a shrine is considered to be a sacred place where the gods dwell. Nature and everything that surround us can be a place where the gods live. This tree is believed to be nearly 600 years old. Our newly crowned Miss International 2018, Mariem Velazco, did not miss the opportunity to appreciate the power of the cedar tree inside the Ise Jingu property.

The Ise Jingu is considered as Japan's most sacred shrine. Believers have to make a pilgrimage into the shrine at least once their lifetime.

Since 2015, the Top 5 winners of Miss International have visited Ise Jingu, praying for a bountiful year ahead and more success in achieving each one's dream.
