Coastal inlets, customs, and communities come together at Ise-Shima National Park
With two very distinct areas, Ise-Shima National Park is one of the more unusual parks in Japan. Its coastal area comprises capes, inlets and uninhabited islands, while its forested inland area is largely residential. Explore how its local communities work within the park through guided tours of its lighthouses and pearl farms.
Observing the cultures, customs and everyday lives of the park’s residents is perhaps the biggest draw of this extraordinary pocket of Japan.
