To "Saiou no Miya" in Ise. Saiou is an unmarried royal woman who was chosen to serve the Amaterasu Omikami god of Ise Shrine on behalf of the Emperor. The Saiou system was established by Emperor Tenmu, and more than 60 ladies were said serving as Saiou for past 660 years. "Saigu", which still retains its place name and station name, was the old residence of Saiou. "Saiou no Miya" of this time is the resort in the woods that reproduces the past dynasty culture of Saio.
