"Oharaimachi" prospers in front of Ise Jingu /Naiku.On the beautiful cobblestone street of about 800m that runs from Uji Bridge along the Isuzu River, the streets of Ise's unique "kirituma"(gable roof style) and "tumairi"(entrance on gable side)houses are lined up.There are many souvenir shops, restaurants on the street, and you can enjoy walking around the town after worshiping.There are also historical buildings such as the Jingudojo and the former Keikoin House, which are full of retro atmosphere that is typical of Ise.
If you walk along the quaint narrow alley called Seko from Oharaimachi Street, you will arrive at the clear stream Isuzugawa.It is also recommended to take a leisurely walk along the river.
In the middle of Oharaimachi, a square which was led by a side street in front of the Akafuku main store is "Okageyokocho".The typical buildings of Ise from the Edo period to the Meiji period have been relocated and reproduced, and it makes you feel as if you have traveled back in time to the Edo period.On the site of about 4000 tsubo, there are many food shops and souvenir shops unique to Ise-Shima, and all the shops are full of charm.In an experience facility with the theme of Japanese mythologyOKAGASZA the mythical hall(Paid admission), an overview of the myth is displayed with images and Japanese paper dolls, which is also a must-see.
