Mie Prefecture Tourism Information

The Prefectural capital is Tsu City. The population of the prefecture is about 1.8 million people and the population of Tsu is about 28 million people. The prefectural land is 180km from north to south and 108km from east to west, and it is divided into five regions, Hokusei, Iga, Chusei, Nansei and East Kishu. “Isejingu”, “Kumano Kodo” and “Suzuka Circuit” are famous as tourism attractions. There are also theme parks, “Nagashima Spa Land”, “Shima Spain  Village” and “Iga-ryu Ninja Museum”.
Among them, “Ise Jingu (Shrine)” is the tourist destination that represents Mie Prefecture, and more than five million tourists visite there each year. It has deep ties with the Imperial Court because of the fact that Amaterasu Oomikamiyou is an enshrined deity of the inner sanctuary, and in the Edo era Ise Shrine was visited by worshipers from all over the country regardless of the identity as “Oisemairi (a pilgrimage to Ise Shrine).” There are two main shrines in the Ise Shrine, and the inner shrine enshrines Amateras Oomikami and the outer shrine enshrines
Toyoukeno Oomikami, the god of food and grains.
“Kumano Kodo” is the mountainous road that was established in order to pilgrimage to the Kumano Sanzan (Kumano Three Shrines), Kumano Hongu Taisha, Kumano Hayatama Taisha and Kumano Nachi Taisha, and the road was registered as a World Cultural Heritage as “Sacred Sites and Pilgrimage Routes in the Kii Mountain Range”. Kumano three shrines have been worshiped as a place of mountain training and the Holy Land of faith since ancient times and has accepted many worshipers. “Kumano Kodo” developed as road of pilgrimage, and there are still cobbled streets of those days even now.
“Suzuka Circuit” in Suzuka City is an international racing course representing Japan, which was built by Honda in 1962. F1 Japan Grand Prix and Suzuka 8 Hours were held, and it is said to be the center of Japan’s motor sport.
There is the Mikimoto Pearl Island in Toba City, and there is the Museum and Memorial of Mikimoto Kokichi, who was successful in farming the world’s first pearl. It is also known as only place in Japan where women divers perform demonstrations of fishing, and more than 20 million tourists visit annually. Ago Bay is the rias of Ise Peninsula and there are about 50 islands in the bay, and cultured pearls is flourishing from the old days.
The specialty products of Mie Prefecture are Akafuku, Ise tea, rice, oranges, Matsusaka beef, Ise shrimp and pearl. Also, there are local cuisines such as “Ise Udon”, thick soft noodles soaked in the sauce that is made of Tamari soy sauce and soup stock, and “Tekono-zushi (kneded Sushi)”, a kind of Chirashi-zushi, in which lean fish such as bonito
