Nyudo-gatake (入道ヶ岳, nyudo-gatake), white limestone remains after many months and years of erosion. "Byobuiwa" (屏風岩)is the natural monument of a sheer cliff that stands like a folding fan.

◆Tsuzumigaura and The Chiyozaki Ocean Swimming AreaBeautiful pine trees on the white, sandy beach and a shallow shoreline makes for a very lively summer ocean swimming season. It is a beach close to Nagoya, in which many tourists come to visit from the Kansai Area, Chubu, and of course Mie Prefecture.
◆Ise Katagami StencilIse Katagami stencil was originally used for yukata and yuzen dyeing, as well as dyeing fine patterns into the fabric of a kimono. This paper is a tool of traditional industrial art and part of a long history that we are very proud of. The planned patterns and designs are copied on to "kataji-gami" (processed Japanese paper). Then, the design is carefully extracted using a small chisel, which means that this advanced level of craft requires a tremendous amount of patience and endurance. In 1952, this art was designated as an intangible cultural asset by the Japanese Agency for Cultural Affairs, and six experts of this craft were certified as being living national treasures in 1955.
In addition, Ise Katagami stencil and Suzuka-zumi ink materials are on permanent display in the Municipal Museum of Traditional Arts and Crafts (伝統産業会館, dentosangyo-kaikan), which is close to the Tsuzumigaura coastline.
