Sure it's a tourist trap, but if it's all you have time for take advantage of the opportunity to see many interesting things. The prices are high and the quality is often not as high as you can find when you have more time to...More

We had high hopes for Oharai-machi and Okage-yokocho, but we were a bit disappointed with the "old town" architecture. It was not as exciting as we had read about. There were plenty of snack shacks and souvenir shops, the food part was by far better....More

This street is full of shops and restaurants. Walking there gives you some feeling of walking in an Japanese old town. It is a "must" visit area for this town.

It is really nice experience to walk around street with a lots of option of food and omiyage. While coming back from Ise inner shrine or while going to the shrine you can take this street. Recommended for food lovers.
