Shima City is located in Japan’s Mie Prefecture facing the Pacific Ocean. The entire city is designated as a part of Ise-Shima National Park. This resulted in restraints on large-scale economic development but also preservation of its rich natural resources and scenic beauty, and made farming, fisheries, and tourism are the economic mainstays of the community.
