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.

  • Thanks along with the alley is a lively shopping street. Proximity to ISE Naiku, worshippers after discovering a fun. Unfortunately only the holidays quite crowded and slowly sit.

  • Parked parking thanks to near the alley before thanks to walking around the street, Oharai-machi. Easy walk, almost no room column was about 8:00, sparsely shop is open again. I guess a few people go to walk again after praying in the Grand shrine of ISE, 9:30 per? Also lined up were how much do matrix was about 5 minutes. Eat a bit and try out Snoopy Chaya, walking around and then took a ticket in advance at 10 was taking early lunch, 11:30 mountain man. Walking also finally, soon went back to the car. Eat what you want to eat, but soon and wanted to see what was so happy. Congestion period is recommended early action will!
