Once every twenty years, the sacred Japanese temple of Ise Jingu is entirely rebuilt. Inspired by the idea of sending a message to the future in the same way this ancient shrine keeps alive the traditions of the past, Miyazawa creates a breathtaking visual journey linking the sacred Ise forest with other forests throughout Japan. Acclaimed photographer Masa-aki Miyazawa discovered the essence of that ancient way of living in Ise Jingu, Japan’s holiest Shinto shrine.
