Amazing 4K Documentary Film “A Message from Ise Grand Shrine”
The Ise Grand Shrine (Ise-Jing?) is an important Shinto shrine complex in the city of Ise in southern Honshu, Japan. It has been designated a National Treasure (kokuh?) by the Japanese government.
The site of the Ise Jingu has long been sacred, due to its forests of sacred Japanese cypress trees. In the earliest times, these trees were worshipped in nature without any buildings. Later, a special tree was cut down and made into a post, around which a shrine building was constructed. The wooden post was believed to retain its sacredness during the process, and this post is still central to the Ise Jingu today.
This is a morality film and it poses the question in terms of atmosphere, putting emphasis on nature conservation, which is an important component of action for a sustainable society.
Dramatic flow and usage of Kitajima’s music in the film makes a natural path for viewers to raise your energy upward.
