Oharai-machi, Ise

4.4
#4 of 189 in Sightseeing in Mie Prefecture
Lookout Historic Site
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.

  • Souvenir shop, food, and Ms., you can explore the fun. Any store I wanted to try in hearty... Oh sorry! There are many drinks. Great drinking atmosphere there is shirataka Miyake shops was going to bother you. Spills spill-resistant, so dazzling he poured salt on the knob will. I asked even ramen Ichimaru. A little hungry so we had seasonal tomato ramen. Unlike the tourist taste. Go close. Also heard in the shops.

  • It is recommended to explore the inner shrine visits after. Both sides of the road are lined with old buildings and are lined with souvenir shops, restaurants, etc. I went on a weekday, but still quite a lot of people. There were people taking pictures in the middle of the road, pedestrians ' paradise is because no attention is required.
