    The interior of Amimoto Shokudo gives off the impression of a fishing port and along with its main offerings of easy bowls of rice with ingredients unique to Ise, it allows visitors to try fresh tastes and enjoy both Mie Prefecture’s famous sake and local sake.

    五十鈴川を見下ろして、落ち着いて食事が出来ます。和菓子もあり、お茶やコーヒーを飲んで一休みにも最適。食事も、伊勢うどん、松阪牛、てごね寿司…メニューも豊富。 金剛證寺行きのバス停も近いです。 おはらい町通り、おはらい横丁に比べ空いてますが、食事時間等が決まってるなら、予約した方がいいかな。お昼時間を少しずらしたので、すんなりと座れました。
