The Ise Shrine (Ise-jingū) is the most important Shinto shrine complex.

河崎の町並み Kawasaki Street
There was nobody around. The Old-timey Buildings were quite nice.

We tried Ise Udon at lunch.

The noodles were thick and soft. The soup was tasty and not as salty as it looks.

伊勢河崎商人館 Ise Kawasaki Shoninkan(Merchant museum)
The building was originally a sake wholesaler (Ogawa Saketen) established in during the mid Edo period. Inside the building was quite spacious. There were a lot things to see.

Oishiya Ryokan(Japanese style Inn)
The ryokan is steps from The Futamiokitama shrine.

We had dinner in the hotel room. We enjoyed a huge kaiseki meal. We were stuffed.

We borrowed an oil lamp from the hotel and went for a walk on the beach.

It was a sunny day and we had a relaxing time.
