    A restaurant located on the first floor of the long-standing Minamikan ryokan inn on the shore of Lake Shinji in Matsue City, Shimane Prefecture.

    A Kominka café&bar built over 100 years ago on the theme of local production-local consumption, Roan is a comfortable place to be and well represents the Japanese modern style. The variety of drinks available is striking, with a large number of umeshu (plum wines) from each region in Japan. The All-you-can-drink course is good deal, as you can try local sake and “kametsubo-jikomi” shochu.

    Very nice restaurant in 温泉津, with most restaurant close at night, this is the only few opens at dinner time. Food price are reasonable and is tasty.

Shimane Main 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.
