Take a look at what's on offer down Oharai-machi, a historic commercial street in the center of town. With plenty of traditional buildings housing shops and restaurants, the street captures the character of days gone by, with many businesses having opened their doors to travelers and pilgrims for centuries. Try "ise udon," a dish of thick udon noodles in a rich sauce, and "akafuku," traditional Japanese sweets made using mochi rice and red bean paste. Halfway down the street sits a historical recreation area, completed in 1993 to have the look and feel of the Edo and early Meiji periods.

伊勢神宮内宮のお参りを済ませた私たちは、おはらい町でのお土産屋さん巡りと、食べ歩きを、たっぷりと楽しみました。 全体が江戸時代的な古い町並みになっていて、その真ん中には赤福の本店があります。お参りを済ませた後だったのでお昼近くになっていて、人も多くて活気がありました。 朝にはまだ空きが多かった駐車場も、空きを待つ車がかなり並んでいました。日曜日には、朝のうちに駐車するのが必須ですよ！ more »After we had finished our visit to Ise Grand Shrine, we enjoyed visiting souvenir shops in Oharai-cho and eating and walking around. The whole is an old Edo-period townscape, and in the middle of it is Akafuku's main store. It was almost lunch because it was after the visit, and there were a lot of people and it was lively. There were still a lot of free parking lots in the morning, but there were quite a few cars waiting for the space. It is essential to park in the morning on Sundays!
赤福のお店、伊勢うどんのお店、他たくさんのお店がありました。天気が良ければプラプラするだけでとても楽しい。 more »There were Akafuku shops, Ise udon shops, and many other shops. If the weather is good, it's a lot of fun just to prapura.
