    Shimane Pref. Matsueshi Tamayuchouyumachi 965
    Yumachigama is a pottery shop and studio workshop located in the immediate vicinity of Tamatsukuri-Onsen Station. Opened in 1922, the pottery makes the Fujinayaki style of ceramics which flourished in the home territory of the seventh lord of the Matsue Domain, Matsudaira Fumai, who was also well known as being a master in the tea ceremony. Fujinayaki is characterized by its honey color which comes from the yellow glaze called ouyu (literally, “yellow glaze”), and its blue color which comes from the blue glaze called namakoyu (literally, “sea cucumber glaze”. The plump designs which express the warmth of the work done by hand are also very appealing. The shop’s ‘egg baker’ whose design was completed with the help of the British potter, Bernard Leach, is a popular piece.

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.
