Ago Bay英虞湾

Other Sightseeing Spot

"Ago-wan is a famous bay located on a ria coast with many inlets, in the southern part of the Shima Peninsula in Shima City, Mie Prefecture. Local specialty seafood products include the delicacy called Miru (seaweed), Asari short-necked clam and Iwagaki oyster. There is also a thriving pearl cultivation industry, using the Akoya pearl oyster; during the early years of the Showa period (1926-1989) when cultured pearl techniques were adopted here, this area became known as ""Pearl Bay."" Many islands can be seen in Ago Bay, including Kashiko Island, which was the venue for the 42nd G7 Summit (the ""Ise-Shima Summit"") in 2016. From the observation platforms on Mt. Tomoyama and Mt. Yokoyama, visitors can enjoy some really photogenic scenery."

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.
