While I have so far covered a large number of attractions across Mie Prefecture in my past articles, including the iconic Ise Jingu pilgrimage, rich cultural experiences such as the Ama divers and Iga ninja, the pristine nature of Akame 48 Waterfalls, Instagenic spots like the Shima Mediterranean Village and Nabana No Sato, and last but not least lots of tantalizing, first-class culinary delights such as Matsusaka beef and Ise-ebi (lobster), Mie continues to charm me with new allures each time I visit.
This time around, I ventured into the humble little suburb district tucked in central Mie called Taki Town, to witness for myself one of the largest commercial resorts in Japan, which has just newly opened this year, 2021 — VISON.
As we drove along the winding road leading up to what seems like a real-life “Laputa,” I was astonished by how boundlessly this contemporary castle in the sky stretches into the dis-tance, gently watched over by a serene range of mountains.
VISON, if written in the Japanese kanji, means “beautiful village.” Combining luxurious villas with open-air baths, a farm-to-table market, a therapeutic spa and lots of carefully curated dining spots, VISON brings together Mie’s finest all in one place.
For those who want to pamper themselves further, note that there are also lots of spa and beauty treatments to indulge in. I chose a quick reflexology massage to prep myself for more walking the next day.
Life is good, I thought to myself while soaking in the warm bath exuding a faint scent of mixed herbs. I am really liking this seamless blend of thoughtful comfort and unspoiled natural surroundings.
