Overview
  • In this unique Heian era (794-1185) culture tour near Ise Jingu Shrine you will step into the role of the "forgotten" princess Saio and will experience how she spent her days in the historical Saiku Palace.
  • This exclusive tour is highly recommended for Japanese history lovers and visitors of Ise Jingu Shrine. With a professional private guide you will be able to discover a less known part of Ise Jingu Shrine's history and experience the life of a 10th century Japanese aristocrat, long before the samurai caste appeared. The highlight of the tour - putting on an expensive multi-layered junihitoe kimono and enjoying Heian era entertainment - takes place in a faithfully reproduced cultural treasure building which used to be part of the Saiku Palace. This is a unique and rare to find experience which focuses on the culture, traditions and lifestyle of the imperial court aristocrats from one of the most prolific eras in Japanese history.
  • Total of 2 female and 1 male costumes available.
