A photo book depicting Ise Shrine’s Shikinen Sengu ceremony in the “purity of darkness.”

Every twenty years, Ise Shrine is restored in the ancient Shikinen Sengu ceremony. The climax of the ritual, when the deity is transferred to the new shrine, is conducted in "jouan"—the “purity of darkness.” Commemorating the 62nd Shikinen Sengu that took place in 2013, this photo collection explores themes of darkness and light in its exquisite portrayals of the ceremony.
