Kawasaki “Kawanoeki”

Kawasaki “Kawanoeki”

The station-style building facing the Seta River was built in the image of streetcars that used to run in Ise City.This is a great photo spot.

Tips from the tourist association staff

The merchant houses along the river used to have garages where boats could be docked and people and their luggage could go up from there. A seawall has been built so it no longer looks as it once did, but scenery of the past still remains.


Ise Shunkei Design Koubou (伊勢春慶デザイン工房)

IIse Shunkei is everyday lacquerware that was actively produced in Ise from the Edo period until around the 30s or early XNUMXs.The appeal of this product is its rustic texture, which makes the most of the grain of the cypress wood, and its high practicality, which makes it strong and long-lasting.You can watch the craftsmen at work in the design studio.Lacquerware is also on display and for sale.

Tips from the tourist association staff

There are many restaurants in Ise City that use Ise Shunkei tableware, from Japanese cuisine to French cuisine.Please look for them.


Asahiyu

Asahiyu (exterior)

In the old days, it was customary to go to Futamiura to purify oneself before going to Ise Shrine by “Shioabi (salt-water bathing).”Asahiyu recreates the “Shioabi” experience.

Twice a day, in the morning and evening, hot water is prepared using seawater pumped up from Futamiura.Take a bath in the open-air seawater bath and experience misogi in a public bath before visiting the Ise Shrine.


A Shop in a Beautiful Traditional Wooden Building

This house has a triangular roof that looks like a book left open face down.Many of the houses in Ise have gabled roofs and the sawtooth-shaped roofs stand out beautifully.It is said that one reason gabled roof entrances became popular was because the main hall of the Ise Shrine was flat and it would have been “intimidating” to use the same style as the shrine. It is also said that the narrow frontage and deep, long, narrow buildings facing the road led to the spread of the style.

Inase

The historic building and garden are beautiful, and you can enjoy sushi dishes made with seasonal ingredients in an atmospheric space that feels like going back in time.

Haritaya Honten (播田屋本店)

A long-established Japanese sweets shop. The famous “Itoin Senbei” rice crackers were created as an offering when the Meiji Emperor visited the Ise Shrine. It is a delicious treat with a nostalgic and elegant sweetness, and a crispy and light texture.

Sakatoku Kombu (酒徳昆布)

In this shop, which retains the atmosphere of a warehouse, you will find carefully made kelp products.The simplicity of the taste allows the craftsmanship to shine through, making the most of the essential goodness of the ingredients.

Kaneyasu (かねやす)

A store specializing in dried seaweed and dry goods, marked by the gold letters on its signboard.Ise-Shima’s specialties, such as aosa and nori (seaweed), are also great gifts to take home.
