There are many famous sightseeing spots gathered in the Ise Shima area, such as, to begin with Ise Jingu, which is loved by Japanese as "Spiritual home", Oharaicho town, the Toba aquarium, and Meoto Iwa Rocks (the rocks like a married couple/ Futami Okitama Jinja).

Toba Grand Hotel, as close as about 5 minutes by car from "Toba" station of Kintetsu railway, located on a cape from where you can overview the Toba bay, and also is convenient to visit to Ise Jingu, is a popular hotel and just the best for the one who likes to enjoy sightseeing in Ise Shima area.
And there is another reason for its popularity among many people. It is because the hotel is "a superb view hotel", from which you will enjoy viewing great views as much as you like.
