The shape of the Chubu Hokuriku region of Japan resembles the shape of
the Noto Peninsula in the shape of a dragon's head, reminiscent of a 
dragon's head rising, hence the name of the region's tourist area

The main attraction of the day is Mie's Ise Jingu. Before that, please heal your heart at Eigenji, a temple enveloped in silence. One of the real pleasures of traveling in Ise Jingu is to stop by Okage Yokocho and eat while walking around.

In the morning, go from Mie to Shiga through the rider's sacred place "Pearl Road"! There, you will have a ninja experience and head to Todaiji Temple in Nara Prefecture. In Nara Prefecture, you can interact with deer and worship Japan's largest Buddha statue, which is about 15m tall.

The ruins of Gifu Castle are well known as the castle where Lord Nobunaga Oda used as a base to unify the whole country. Since it is a mountain castle built on the summit of Mt. Kinka (Mt. Inaba) with an altitude of 329m, you can reach the summit by ropeway.

Since ancient times, Ise Jingu has been regarded as a shrine of the highest special status, and is currently the main sect of the Jinja Honcho, and is regarded as ``the general tutelary deity of the Japanese people''. The nearby Okage Yokocho is a sightseeing spot that reproduces the townscape of Torii-maemachi from the late Edo period to the early Meiji period.
