Shima Vacation Packages
Tokyo, Japan's capital, is roughly 190 miles (306 kilometers) northeast of Shima, while Nagoya is 60 miles (97 kilometers) to the north.
When it comes to getting the best from your time here, remember that Shima is just the beginning; Mie is home to a treasure-trove of natural and man-made attractions. Take a trip to the Ise Shrine and Sun Arena in Ise, approximately 13 miles (21 kilometers) to the southeast of Shima.
Iga, is another interesting spot to head to. It is 50 miles (80 kilometers) from Shima and offers a number of interesting points of interest, including Omura Shrine, Kagiya no Tsuji Park and Ueno Castle. Iga has much to offer visitors keen to explore a little deeper. Aoyama Northern Park, Haiseiden and Iga Ninja Museum are some of the other points of interest sure to delight.
Being able to speak a few common Japanese words and phrases can sometimes be the difference between a simple vacation and a rewarding journey into the very heart of Mie. "Isshoni odorimasenka?" ("Would you like to dance with me?") is a good one to know. Or try "Benjo wa doko desu ka?" (Where's the toilet?).
You'll never want to say "Sayōnara" (farewell) to this interesting place.
Accommodation in Shima
Although Shima doesn't have any short or long stay accommodation options listed on Expedia's long list of Japan hotels, visitors can base themselves in the Asanokan or the Oishiya in Ise-Shima National Park, which is 4 miles (7 kilometers) away. Less upscale, but very popular Ise-Shima National Park accommodation options are the SENPOKAKU and the Resort Hills Toyohama SORA no KAZE.
