Probably but natures beauty in whatever form is okay We like national parks type scenery
A straight drive from Shirahama to Ise is 3.5+ hrs and even if you don’t mind the long drive you will miss out some nice sites on the southern tip of the Kii Peninsula. Time allowed consider following the coast and visit places like Kushimoto, Cape Shionomisaki, Katsuura, Nachi, Shingu, Kumano, Onigajo and the Shima Peninsula.
Despite the infamy, Taiji is actually pretty interesting, and one will find that at least some of the town's whaling history is related to Hawaii. Very nice people, but wary of Greenpeace types.
Doomo for the help
