Mie Prefecture forms the eastern part of the Kii Peninsula, and borders on Aichi, Gifu, Shiga, Kyoto, Nara, and Wakayama. It is considered part of the Kansai and Tōkai regions due to its geographical proximity to Aichi Prefecture and its cultural influence from Kansai, such as the fact that Kansai dialect is spoken in Mie. Traditionally, though, the Iga region of Mie is considered to have always been a part of Kansai.

The Ise Plain has a relatively moderate climate, averaging 14 to 15 degrees Celsius for the year. The Iga Basin has more daily temperature variance and averages temperatures 1 to 2 degrees cooler than the Ise Plain. Southern Mie, south of the Shima Peninsula, has a warmer Pacific marine climate, with Owase Region having one of the heaviest rainfall figures for all of Japan.

Isuzu River: Isuzu River is a fresh river which lies in the west end of Ise Grand Shrine or Ise Jingu Shrine (inner main sanctuary called Naiku). It has been written about in various waka, a type of classical poetry in Japan, since long time ago. It is located in Ise- Shima National Park, a designated area based on the Natural Parks Law in 1946. The surrounding area of this river is one of the representative scenic spots in the park. Uji Bridge of Ise Grand Shrine: Uji Bridge is a wooden bridge built across Isuzu River, located in an entrance of the approach to Naiku of Ise Grand Shrine. It is reconstructed every twenty years in advance of the Shikinen Sengu Ceremony (a ceremony held in Ise Grand Shrine every twenty years, in which all of the buildings of Naiku are reconstructed, and the object of worship is transferred to one of the new buildings). Common reverse design of 1000 yen silver coin: Snow Crystals, Moon and Cherry Blossoms.
