This is a must see place after visiting the Ise Shrine. The street is lined with a variety of souvenir shops with local specialties. My favorite is a shop selling locally brewed sake.

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!

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.

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
