    Shimane Pref. Odashi Yunotsuchouyunotsu 7

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.

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.
