Things to do: religious sites, historic sites, sightseeing
A spiritual center of Shintoism, Ise stands as a traditional city where visitors can see the roots of Japanese culture in a number of well-preserved natural and historic sites. A third of the city consists of forestland owned and managed by the main shrine in the Shinto religion, with many small shrines and an abundance of historic woodland complementing the two main shrines of Ise. The mountains lead down to the sea, with clear rivers flowing through traditional rice farming villages where scenes of daily life remain largely unaffected by industrial developments. Treating yourself to some local specialities, including fresh lobster sashimi and Ise udon noodles, forms an essential part of any vacation to Ise.

Where to stay

Take a look close to the main Iseshi train station for a good deal of the inland accommodations of Ise. Located close to one of the main shrine complexes, the area has been decked out with a suitably wide range of accommodations--including renovated traditional "ryokan" (guesthouses), standard hotels, and the odd hostel--to befit its position as a key place of Shinto pilgrimage. The coastal area to the east offers a similarly broad array of accommodations, with the second of Ise's main shrines located here.
