    Travel / Tourism
    Mie Pref. Igashi Kachidi
    This plateau occupies one corner of Muro-Akame-Aoyama Quasi-National Park, located in Kachiji, Iga City, Mie Prefecture. The plateau's gentle slopes and the Aoyama Plateau National Park Road and Tokai Nature Trail are maintained to allow visitors to enjoy driving and walking here. In the spring, Japanese andromeda and Rhododendrons bloom, and throughout the summer visitors can see the small red Carnation flowers. Visitors can also enjoy the beauty of the four seasons with the Maiden Silvergrass in the fall and the frost-covered trees in the winter. Near the top of the plateau, there is a wind farm with dozens of wind turbines. Visitors can come close to the turbines to appreciate this impressive sight.

Spread across the eastern side of the Kii Peninsula, Mie prefecture boasts hundreds of kilometers of pretty coastline comprising the oyster-rich Toba city and Shima National Park all the way down to Kumano, a city that marks the beginning of part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, which runs into neighboring Wakayama prefecture. However, Mie is best known for the Ise Jingu Shinto shrine inland, one of the oldest and largest shrines in the country.
