Miyagawa River bank宮川堤


The Miyagawa River flows to the west of Toyoukedaijingu (Geku) of Ise Jingu Shrine. A continuous row of Yoshino cherries, hill cherries, and other cherry trees stands along the bank of the river, making it a popular destination for flower viewing. The sight of the tunnel of light pink blossoms created by the trees here is so beautiful, it will take your breath away, and the area has even been selected as both a Prefectural Place of Scenic Beauty and as one of Japan’s Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots. The best time to view the area’s around 800 cherry trees is early April. During this time, the cherry trees are lit up at night and a Spring Festival is also held here, and the bank bustles with visitors come to enjoy the blossoms. Shops, toilets and parking available. Take the bus from Iseshi Station and get off at the “Wataraibashi” stop.

          Mie Main Areas


          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.
