Okage Yokocho おかげ横丁

A town that developed near the gate of Ise Jingu Shrine. A district that is particularly popular and crowded.

"Okage Yokocho" is in the middle of "Oharai-machi", a town that developed near the gate of Ise Jingu Shrine's Naiku.
There are many little stalls like you see at fairs, and every day is like a festival with so much commotion, and you will also notice the good smell that arouses your appetite that comes from all directions.
It is best to have a light lunch and enjoy buying snacks to eat as you walk.
You will find traditional Japanese confections made by a top notch store, which travellers from the old days have bought as gifts, and also numerous other Japanese style merchandises.
It is most certain that visitors will get serious about finding gifts.
This is a popular spot for visitors to Ise Jingu Shrine as a place to eat, have fun and buy gifts.
