Of course, Ise is near the sea in Japan, so almost every place selling food was either selling seafood or meat - or sweets. It's adorable and traditional, but the few places that claim to serve vegetarian-friendly food were hard to find!
It starts/ends near the entrance to the Ise Naiku (Inner) Shrine. A very interesting street of “old” buildings during the Tokugawa Shogunate. Mostly souvenir shops and places to eat local delicacies and lots of other interesting things to see.
Oharai-machi has a lot of interesting shops and some old Japanese style buildings, but they are not the reason I give it a 5 star. The thing that I want to recommend is the Matsusaka beef. It simply melts in your mouth. It costs about...More
This place is perfect to find food or souvenirs after a visit to the sacred shrine. You must be hungry after walking around the outer and inner shrine, and here you can find regional specialties that you won't find elsewhere.

We had high hopes for Oharai-machi and Okage-yokocho, but we were a bit disappointed with the "old town" architecture. It was not as exciting as we had read about. There were plenty of snack shacks and souvenir shops, the food part was by far better....More
Oharai-Machi is a pedestrian street near Ise Naigu. On the both sides of the street you can find many souvenir shops, restaurants, cafes and so on. The visitors to the shrine certainly come to this street. As I went there, it was the new year's...More
