The Shima Peninsula (u, Shima Hantō) is home to Japan's most sacred Shinto shrines, the Ise Shrines, and is a popular leisure resort area among the urban population of Nagoya and Osaka. Attractions besides the Ise Shrines include several theme parks and pearl cultivation along the peninsula's rugged coast.

The peninsula has been designated as Ise-Shima National Park for its natural beauty and cultural importance. It is located in southern Mie Prefecture, and consists of the cities of Ise, Toba and Shima and the town of Minami-Ise.
