Hello, we have about 1.5 day and 2 nights at the area. Originally we wanted to stay at Ise and then rent a car to visit Ise Shima National Park. However, we realized the park is pretty big, maybe we stretch ourselves a bit thin in 1.5 day? This is our first time in Japan, we will visit Kyoto and Naoshima, and then Ise area. Maybe Ise is a bit similar to Kyoto old town? We want something different.
If we stay inside of Ise, then we would visit the shrine, the market after we arrive, then the next day rent a car to explore the park, and climb to the top to see the view of the islands. If we stay at Toba, then we have to take the train back to Ise to visit the town, then back to Toba, or store our luggage at Ise train station. Toba is just sea view, not particular, so we don't care that much. but I like to see view of many small islands from atop. What do you think, expert?
