    Shimane Pref. Odashi Yunotsuchouyunotsu 7
    A café in Ohda City, Shimane Prefecture operating out of a remodeled building which once belonged to Yakushiyu, the oldest hot spring bathhouse still in existence in the Yunotsu Onsen hot spring district. The stately wood building was constructed in 1919 and is notable for its Western-style design, including beautiful stained glass windows in its white walls, as well as the graceful arches under its eaves. The café makes use of the former men’s changing area and has an old-fashioned atmosphere highly reminiscent of Japan’s Taisho Roman style. The café offers food such as homemade Japanese-style curry and “Edo period bugyomeshi,” a dish whose recipe was once handed down among the Naito family, whose members served as village headsmen in the area for generations. The café’s onsen cappuccinos, decorated with Japan’s hot spring mark, are also popular.

    薬師湯のレトロな旧館をリノベーションしたカフェです。NHKの「ハルさんの古カフェ」にも登場したお店だそうです。それゆえなのか、もともと土地の名士の家系が経営しているゆえの気位の高さなのか、お値段は都会値段で高いです。名物「奉行飯」もかなり強気の価格設定ですが、味は悪くはなかったです。温泉街の通りに面した窓際のお席がお薦めです。

Shimane Areas

around-area-map

What Shimane prefecture lacks in size and population, it makes up for in scenery and ancient mythology. Izumo-taisha, in the middle of the prefecture, is said to be Japan’s oldest Shinto shrine, where stories that delve into the creation of the Japanese race have been passed down over centuries. The 180 Oki Islands, a 40-minute ferry ride north of Sakaiminato, offer an undiscovered paradise well off the beaten track.
