2015-11-17 9:30 am
Oharai Machi (Oharaimachi) is the old 1 km long approach to the Ise Grand Shrine Naiku. With restaurants, shops and many old traditional buildings, Oharai Machi businesses have been serving customers, tourists and pilgrims for several centuries and as long as Ise Grand Shrine Naiku has existed.
While Oharai Machi is full of history and surprise, a recent addition to this street is yet another big success among tourists because of its many stores and restaurants : Okage Yokocho. Completed in 1993 and designed to represent a small town during the Edo Period, Okage Yokocho is definitively worth a visit and will surprise you with its authentic charm.
