Oharai-machi, Ise

(4.4/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Take a look at what's on offer down Oharai-machi, a historic commercial street in the center of town. With plenty of traditional buildings housing shops and restaurants, the street captures the character of days gone by, with many businesses having opened their doors to travelers and pilgrims for centuries. Try "ise udon," a dish of thick udon noodles in a rich sauce, and "akafuku," traditional Japanese sweets made using mochi rice and red bean paste. Halfway down the street sits a historical recreation area, completed in 1993 to have the look and feel of the Edo and early Meiji periods. Use our Ise family vacation planner to add Oharai-machi and other attractions to your Ise vacation plans.

  • Out a solemn shrine (inner) and then suddenly appears a bustling souvenir city. I think from the old Gate district is probably better keep atmosphere. You can realize that came bustling in set Red Gate with a visit to ISE is.

  • 这里一带都是成群的建筑群,来到伊势市必来的地方,但是不知道为什么17点基本店都关门了,街道上也没有游客了,这里显得非常清静,由于要赶火车只能回去了。  more »
  • Worshippers in the Grand shrine of ISE, so Oharai also very crowded. In recent years, boom "thanks to the street" also between it and can advise as a major tourist destination.
