Okage Yokocho Street

Matcha

Dec 8, 2016

Right by the Ise Grand Shrine, a popular tourist attraction and also a place of worship for many locals, is the Okage Yokocho street. This traditional Japanese street has buildings reconstructed in the traditional style of the Edo period (1603 to 1868) and the Meiji period (1868 to 1912), with a good mix of the modern.

There’s one shop here I find very interesting – a retro-looking convenience store in Oharai city. The shop front is made entirely of wood, yet it has automated doors! So it fits in well in this traditional street but still has a modern twist and gives you convenience.

For a total experience, why not mingle with the worshippers that have traveled all the way to Ise City? But of course, you shouldn’t miss the other attractions only Ise offers – goodies like Ise Udon and Matsusaka beef, traditional Japanese handicrafts like Washi paper, and Maneki-neko (fortune cat) along the Okage Yokocho street, a one-stop for all foodies!
