History of the Take Shrine, Mie
The Take Shrine dates back to 1911, the time when 25 gods were enshrined in the Saio Village, named after an imperial family member sent to serve at Ise Grand Shrine. The Take Shrine holds a long history even before its construction, as Evacuators discovered the Saiku palace wall ruins near the site.
The Meiwa Tourism Trading Company believes NFT goshuin can showcase the Take Shrine’s rich history and regulate the local economy.
NFT goshuin symbolizes the historical importance of the Take Shrine in Meiwa Town, Mie Prefecture. It is a uniquely designed art piece with the Take Shrine’s original Hanatemizu motif.
The company sees NFTs as an opportunity to promote tourism in Mei and keep the Shrine’s heritage alive. Although the NFT only focuses on one Shrine, the company is optimistic about tourism increase in the area.
Visitors can collect free NFT goshuin by visiting Mie Take’s Shrine for a limited time.
How to get NFT Goshuin

NFT will automatically upload to visitors’ crypto wallets that they access whenever they want to. There is no online NFT because the sole purpose of this project is to increase tourism in Mie.
