Ise, Japan: On the Streets of Okageyokocho

 It was during the New Year Holiday when I visited, so the streets of Okageyokocho were very crowded with periodic breaks in the crowd.

  Grilled oyster is one of the famous foods you can eat here. This was a very small food stall, but the little old lady running it knew what she was doing.

You can also eat grilled clams, which were also delicious!

There were a few stands selling air dried Mackerel. The vendor would grill some for samples and, of course, the smell of grilled Mackerel would attract the hungry buyers.

One vendor wrapping up the Mackerel a customer just bought.
