Isuzu Seigoan, located in Futami Town, Ise City, Mie Prefecture, which is famous for Meoto Iwa (paired rocks), sells “Iwato no shio yokan,” a well-known Futami sweet. The secret of this sweet is a salt “Futami Iwato no Shio”, which is harvested by boiling water from the Futami Kouzaki coast, where fresh water and salt water mix. The “shio yokan” (salted sweet bean jelly) is made by taking carefully selected azuki beans and kneading this salt into them, giving it an exquisitely balanced taste that is salty and yet refreshingly sweet. It may be a small shop, but there is an eating space where you can enjoy a matcha tea and shio yokan set.

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.
