    Shimane Matsue-shi Nakabaracho 30-4
    This footbath is located in front of Matsue Shinjiko Onsen Station. You can fully enjoy this suitable footbath to aid recovery from fatigue situated to the right after leaving the station. Right next to the terminal, it is a great place to relax and have fun even on rainy days because it has a roof. It can be used even if you do not have your own towel because there are towels on sale at the stand in the station. It is a popular spot for local residents to talk, and many people use it while waiting for the train or bus.

    I found this ashiyu just by train station. I was surprised to see this in unlikely location. Watched train goes by, foot traffic. You wont be able to enjoy peace and quiet, but nice to have ashiyu...

    Shimane Iishi-gun Iinancho Shimokijima 707-2
    A muddy and medicinal golden hot spring. Its water is said to be so therapeutic that local warriors would bathe there to heal their wounds. It's a sodium calcium hydrogen carbonate chloride spring and a neutral hypotonic cold mineral spring, which is unusual for Japan. It's said to help alleviate nerve pain and muscle soreness. At 38 - 40 degrees, the water isn't overly hot. If you soak for 15 minutes, it will slowly warm you through to the core and get you sweating. Morning bathing comes recommended, and some people show up even before they open for the mineral deposits, a sign of the hot spring's ample mineral content.

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.
