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 located near the Naiku of Ise-Jingu Temple. There are many souvenir shops and restaurants, is crowded with people. Also to eat in front of the shrine is a shrine after buying souvenir I is good does not.

  • Yes, true; tourist street but along its 800 meters long, there are several shops and many restaurants and, all in all, it becomes a rather pleasant ramble

  • 'Oharai Town' after you pray to the inner shrine from Uji bridge leads to the right to ramble. Enjoy a taste of traditional Japan town is also enjoying good food and sweets. It was lively and fun old Sangu Road Street. Intact "thanks to the street" at least you feel connected, like went to festivals and street fairs. In the ladder of the Japanese-style confection satisfied that suites me.
