- It's important to note that the title of "Shinto" used for Ise city is not to be confused with the religion of Shinto. Although the words are spelled similarly, the kanji characters used are different and the pronunciation is slightly different as well. In the city's title, "Shinto" has a short "o" sound, while in the religion's name, "Shinto," the "o" sound is long.
- In waka rhetoric Makurakotoba, the word Kamikaze was used to introduce Ise.
