A beautiful street with quaint artisan shops, however if you’re after souvenirs look elsewhere, due to almost everything you see being handcrafted they are not cheap. If you can get up early enough and catch the sunrise by the river you will not be disappointed!

A good pitstop at this shopping street after visiting the shrine. Many restaurants offering local delicacies and merchandises. Tasting street foods as we walked along the street gave different kind of enjoyment in a peaceful atmosphere.

Similar to a ‘ghost town’ in the old west like Bisbee & Tombstone AZ or Virginia City NV the Okage Yokocho was a place of hotels and restaurants offering pilgrims to the Grand Shrine hospitality. A visit takes you back to another time.

The area is very busy but the streets are wide and unlike a lot of other places in Japan I did not feel jammed in and overwhelmed by the crowds. It wasn't a weekend which is probably a plus but the crowds were there but...More

Okage Yokocho is a fun side activity when visiting the famous shrines of Ise, with a variety of food and shopping options to fill some time regardless of the weather. While we weren't especially excited by the shopping, there's some great food to be had...More

While Ise shrine is a sacred place, this area caters to the tourists. You can buy souvenirs, eat all kinds of regional specialties, and enjoy the atmosphere of an old shopping street. Very fun after a visit to the shrine!
