Wakamatsuya is located in Mie Prefecture, roughly 75 kilometers south of Nagoya, Japan. Nestled on the coast of Ise Bay and bordering the lush forest of the Kii Mountain range, Ise City and nearby Shima are blessed with incredible natural beauty, crystal clear water and some of the most delicious seafood in Japan—a perfect combination for kamaboko making.



Just a few minutes along the coast from Ise is the village of Futami, famous for
"Meoto Iwa" (wedded rocks), a sacred part of neighbouring Okitama-Shrine. In Shinto belief, the rocks celebrate the uniting of man and woman.



Ise City is located on the edge of the Kii Mountain range. The mountains cover parts of Wakayama, Nara, and Mie prefectures. In 2004, ancient pilgrimage routes within the Kii Mountain Range became officially enrolled as a
UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage site.
