This is the place you can finally have a true Japan experience
40 minutes away from the center of Ise City, where Ise Jingu is located, there is a small fishing village called 'Ijika'.
Since ancient times, Ise-Shima area has been called "Miketsukuni" which means a country of delicacy, and has been designated as an area that provides the finest ingredients to the Imperial Court and Ise Jingu. The area is blessed with delicious food thanks to the rich nature and warm environment, it has been a popular tourist destination for Japanese travelers for hundreds of years.
Guest House AMARGE is located in one of the small fishing villages in Ise-Shima, 'Ijika' in Toba City, Mie Prefecture.
When people come to Ijika, everyone says "This is a whole new world. I can't even think this is a part of Japan."
People of Ijika still keep up traditional lifestyle, and many of them are working as fishermen or Ama. Ama is a traditional occupation for women, and they dive into the sea and catch shellfish by skin diving and make their living. The tanned wrinkled faces are very different from the people you've seen in cities, and you're going to be amazed when you hear how old they are.
