- quote -
Ise Province (伊勢国 Ise no kuni)
was a province of Japan in the area of Japan that is today includes most of modern Mie Prefecture.
Ise bordered on Iga, Kii, Mino, Ōmi, Owari, Shima, and Yamato Provinces. Its abbreviated form name was Seishū (勢州).
The name of Ise
appears in the earliest written records of Japan, and was the site of numerous religious and folklore events connected with the Shinto religion and Yamato court. Ise province was one of the original provinces of Japan established in the Nara period under the Taihō Code, when the former princely state of Ise was divided into Ise, Iga and Shima. The original capital of the province was located in what is now the city of Suzuka, and was excavated by archaeologists in 1957. The site was proclaimed a national historic landmark in 1986.
The remains of the Ise kokubunji have also been found within the boundaries of modern Suzuka.
Under the Engishiki classification system, Ise was ranked as a "great country" (大国) and a "close country" (近国).
