    "This 100% Natural Flowing Hot Spring is the largest in the Chugoku District, and neither warms nor adds extra water. It is a popular place situated in scenery like a Japanese garden of roughly 165 square meters in size with rock baths. It is recommended to enjoy bathing while watching the starry night sky. Visitors can also enjoy the delicious taste of Shimane seasonal produce in the Japanese-style restaurant ""Yu-an"" where both lunch and dinner are served in a serene atmosphere."

    温泉に入って、湯上りにビールを一杯飲み、その後夕食はこちらでいただきました。 入口の看板には”-御前”のようなセットメニューしかなかったので、中で聞いたら一品料理もあるとのことなので4名で利用しました。 カツカレー、海鮮丼、島根和牛、牛タン、その他1品料理を5品ほど頼み、皆でかなり飲みましたが1人2500円以内で済みました。 観光地価格としては安いと思いましたし、湯上りで気楽に立ち寄れるのが何より...

    久しぶりというか5年ぶりくらいに行きました。港近くの駐車場に車を置いて、湯泉津の温泉街を歩きながら、元湯に向かいました。お店はどこもきちんと営業しているようで一安心。名物のおせんべいを買おうと思っていましたが、オレンジの筒型の缶入りのものはないといわれました。店番のおばさん(おばあさん)は元気そうで、これも一安心。元湯は先客の年配の方(おじいさん)がお二人。「熱いですか?」と尋ねると、「今日はぬる...

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.
