    Shimane Pref. Odashi Yunotsuchouyunotsu I A 22-2
    You’ll find this tourism facility in Yunotsu Town, Ohda City, Shimane Prefecture. This town once flourished as a shipping port for silver ore mined from the World Heritage Site Iwami Ginzan silver mine, and there are two ascending kilns remaining from that era, the largest in the country. In the “Yakimono-kan (Pottery building),” there are exhibits on excellent works of Yunotsu-yaki ware as well as materials on the history of the ceramic art. The workshop allows visitors to create handmade original mugs, plates, bowls, and other items and hand-decorate them.

    Small museum / shop 5 minutes drive from Yunotsu. Offers the chance to paint / glaze pottery from Y2000. Kilns interesting, but if not doing activity, spend 20mins max here.

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.
