15) GO FISHING!
Do you want to learn some survival skills like fishing? Go fishing at the calm waters of the Ago bay. Instead of a conventional fishing rod, here, the fishermen still use nets, which gives them good produce round the year, of course. You’ll end up learning something new, and having a delicious treat to cook for dinner! Even if you aren’t particularly fond of fishing, the spectacular view is a treat in itself.


14) RELAX IN AN ‘ONSEN’
Have you heard of an onsen? It’s the Japanese word for hot springs. It’s basically a private hot water tub overlooking the scenic beauty of the national park. The water is infused with herbal salts. It is said to have hydrotherapeutic effects that relieves body and joint pains. And who can say no to a relaxing bath that has a multitude of benefits, especially when they are on vacation?

13) A SUITE OR A VILLA?
The Amanemu resort has a total of 24 luxury suites, each with a view into the Ago bay or the Ise Shima national park, and built with its own private onsen and a spacious terrace, among all other uber comfortable and state of the art facilites. Apart from the suites, the resort also has villas on rent, each with 2 bedrooms, kitchen, a private onsen and a shutter instead of a door, which when lifted, gives you a full view into the beauty of the surrounding.


12) THE OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD OUTDOOR POOL
 Whenever I go to the hotel, the first thing I look for is if it has a nice, big pool. The pool here trumps every other pool I’ve ever been to! This is the gigantic heated outdoor pool. At 33 meters long. You could host a pool party here, with a hundred people at least! So when you pack your luggage to come here, don’t forget your swimsuit and goggles!


11) WHAT’S THE NEXT BEST THING TO DO AT THE AGO BAY?- BOATING!
For those who are not very fond of fishing, you can still go boating at the Ago bay. This stretch of water during sunrise sure looks heavenly. Away from the noise of city life, this place takes you to a different world, a calm and serene world where time stands still, and you have nothing and nobody in your way.


10) THE PRIVAE ONSEN- FOR AN INDOOR PERSON
This is the picture of the spacious private onsen. It looks very elegant in terms of design and colour choices. If you don’t want your hot water bath overlooking the scenery, then you also have the option to take a bath within your private space. If you are not an outdoors person, and if you love soaking in the water, then this resort has a lot of options for you, a huge outdoor pool and an outdoor and indoor onsen for every suite and villa.


9) THE WAKE UP CALL FROM THE ISE GRAND SHRINE
The Ise Grand Shrine, dedicated to the Chinese Sun goddess, is one of the most famous tourist attractions around this area. The morning prayer from the shrine is a welcome wake up call to the ears of a traveler. Daily music and dance performances are conducted here. Annually, festivals are held based on the agricultural cycle of the region.


8) A WALK THROUGH THE KUMANO KUDO PILGRIMAGE ROUTE
This colourful path with greenery and foliage along its sides, is called the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route. If you want to pay a visit to all the sacred sites along the country side, all you have to do is follow this path, as it connects all the shrines. Even if you don’t want to go to the shrines, a long walk along this path can itself bring about peace and spirituality.


7) FINGER LICKING STREETFOOD
The Amanemu resort provides the best of the best, five star rated food, no doubt. But if you are a street food lover, then the street food outside the Ise Grand shrine is a must try. Rumour has it that sometimes people go to the shrine not only to meditate, but also for its amazing, delicious street food.


6) THE BREATH TAKING VIEW!
This beautiful treat for eyes is the aerial view of the Ago bay. Apart from fishing and boating, you can go pearl fishing here. It sounds better when you tell people you fished out those expensive pearls, instead of buying them! Apart from fishes, there’s a significant oyster population in the bay, if you love oysters in your food.


5) LUXURY AT ITS FINEST
The suites and the villas are a blend of Japanese and modern day architecture and interior design. The colour scale is light, to give the feeling of roominess, and maximum ventilation is provided with full length windows. All rooms face the greenery outside or the Ago bay. The suites have a bedroom, bathroom and dining room, whereas the villas have bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and dining.


4) FOR A HEALTHY BODY AND A HEALTHY MIND

It features the hot springs or onsens infused with salts that relieve body pain and some skin diseases, an outdoor swimming pool with day beds, a sauna, a manicure and pedicure studio and a full-fledged fitness center with a focus on yoga and cardio exercises.


3) WHAT’S THE WAY TO A MAN’S HEART? THROUGH HIS STOMACH!
 While other activities around the resort are subject to every individual’s personal interest, food is something everybody equally loves spending time on.
