|}, formerly called Ujiyamada (宇治山田), is a city located in eastern Mie Prefecture, on the island of Honshū, Japan.

Ise is home to Ise Grand Shrine, the most sacred Shintō Shrine in Japan, and is thus a very popular destination for tourists. The city has a long-standing nickname-Shinto (神都)-that roughly means "The Holy City" and literally means "Capital of the Kami"). It is part of Ise-Shima National Park.
