Meoto Iwa, or the Wedded Rocks, are two sacred rocks located in the ocean close to Ise city in Mie prefecture. The two rocks are tied together with a shimenawa rope made from rice straw or hemp, and is replaced in a ceremony three times a year.

There are several wedded rocks scattered across Japan, as this kind of rock formation are religiously significant in Shinto. Though what is special about the wedded rocks in Mie prefecture is that if you’re extremely lucky with the weather, you can see Mt Fuji at in the distance.
