Ise

3.7
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. Find what you're looking for from your Ise holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Japan visit planning site.
