Busing or Cycling around to see the sights
We found the best way to get around in Ise City to be by bus. Getting from Ise-shi Station to Naiku or from Ujiyamada Station to Naiku cost us 410 yen each one way. So, it is pricey (for a bus ride) but, as my wife says, it's worth it. From Ise-shi Station or Ujiyamada Station, we didn't ride the bus to Geku because it's walkable (10 minutes more or less).
They also have bicycles for rent at Ise-shi station. I think during the months when the weather is better it would be ideal to get around by bicycle. From our experience, this is our travel method of choice as we love cycling. Overall, it's much cheaper than any other way (except walking) and it's much easier to see the sights and stop of at other areas that can be part of your itinerary.
Regarding the buses, they come often enough so you won't have to wait too long.

To Ise from Osaka
The easiest way to get to Ise from Osaka Station is take the train to Tsuruhashi. From Tsuruhashi, you can then take a train directly to Ise. Most of the trains are limited express trains, so the cost is around 3200 yen. It takes about two hours to get to Ise from Osaka.
