ELLISTA – guide to local life -

IST – DMC based in Mie, Japan –

Over 2000 years history, Japan has one of the greatest unique culture, custom and nature. Ise Shima is one of the few regions where we can still find these traditional values, "authentic Japanese touch". That's why this area is called "the spiritual home for the Japanese".

As a DMC(Destination Management Company) , IST would like to propose a journey to feel the Japan's irreplaceable values which has been kept long in "Ise Shima". We hope more international visitors can have a chance to experience the beauty of Ise Shima.



  • Watch how an Ama diver catch shellfish or seaweed in the water by hands without any diving tank.
  • Listen tales of the sea handed down through the generations from older to younger Ama.
  • Taste the very fresh shellfish served by the real Ama.
