Oharai-machi, Ise

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.

    It is to Ise Jingu Shrine-Naiku pilgrimage after the head most people dining, shopping, major sightseeing spots. Visited 30 years Buri, but was more hustle and bustle of will, but did not change that impression. To demonstrate the ingredients of Matsuzaka beef croquette, akafuku headquarters, looking for food, watching until the braid shop just off hanging out walking around. For meal reservations and went on a tour, then went to Fuzhou red eat I desire most, unfortunately. Also the spent time exploring and vows revenge.
