Mie is situated in the center of Japan’s main island Honshu, on the Kii-hanto peninsula facing the Pacific Ocean.
More than one third of the prefecture is made up of national parks; it’s craggy mountains, misty forests and waterfalls were ideally suited to ninja training which you can still experience today in Akame and nearby Iga.
Iga (commonly referred to as Iga Ueno) also has a number of memorials dedicated to the poet Basho, including a museum and his birth house maintained in its original state.
Encompassing nearly one-fifth of the picturesque coastal town of Ise-shi, the Ise Jingu is by far Mie’s most famous attraction.
From the Ise-Jingu you can also join one of the trails on the old Kumano Kodo, walking the gentle road to Tamaru station.
In the Toba and Shima area you can see traditional female dived for pearls, holding their breath for long periods and using special techniques to propel themselves to and from the seabed.
Remote Maruyama Senmaida is one of Japan’s most beautifully preserved rice paddy terraces, and a gorgeous place to view the sunset.
