Oharai-machi, Ise
(4.5/5 based on 340+ 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.

  • It is the inner shrine visits before and after the inevitable town (Street). Way back from seeing the side street of shops at the same time. And the crowds too 10:00 similar to downtown Tokyo. Shop our tasting, especially the dried baked daily, has made matrix. Every time the tasting, will be delicious, but we bought dried fish for 2,000 yen. Free samples, you should try to buy time, as well as salmon. It is a tasty fish. In addition, ISE Udon noodle shop, and try feeding again! Sells many beef skewers, hanpen, eating out can be what.

  • The number of shops many think too small, too tight all around can see in about an hour. Akafuku, have fun. Wait a bit, however, akafuku customers because there are many. It is recommended to start staking shop evening at around 5 pm, so get there early.

  • It seems to streets crowded with many people from the Edo period. People fill the streets when I went too much there were overwhelmed. It is at that time such as ryokan lined so that souvenir shops were now. Many of course akafuku shop.
